What's in a name?

Ever wondered what it takes to
have a University building named
in your honor?
It's probably not as hard as you
All you need is a couple mil-
lion dollars lying around that you
wouldn't mind donating to the Uni-
Take New York real estate devel-
oper and alum Stephen M. Ross,
who gifted the University its larg-
est donation ever, a grand sum of
$100 million.
In return, the University Board
of Regents renamed the Business
School in his honor.
Luckily for you, it doesn't take
a $100 million donation to name
every new University building,
according to the University's policy
for the naming of facilities, spaces
and streets.

"New facilities may be named for
a donor or donors for contributions
of 50 percent or more of the fund-
raising goal for the facility or 33
percent or more of the anticipated
project cost, whichever is greater,"
the policy states.
Bob Groves, the University's
associate vice president for devel-
opment, said University officials
stay in touch with affluent alumni
in the hopes that they will make a
contribution to their alma mater.
"We are constantly in contact
with alumni that we hope will sup-
port the University financially," he
But not all alumni have the
resources to make the kind of dona-
tion that would warrant a name-
sake building.
"It's a pretty rare circumstance,"
he said. "There aren't that many

people that can make gifts of that
magnitude." v
And having millions of dollars
doesn't necessarily cut it.
"We cannot present this as an
opportunity to a donor unless we z
consult with the regents the pos-
sibility to put their name on it,"'
Groves said.
There are also other ways to get-"
your name affixed to a University
