Guidelines for Naming Departments and Other College Units

Names should:

  1. Clearly communicate the basic work of the unit;
  2. Not duplicate or cause confusion with other college department names; and
  3. Be as short as possible. Long names are hard to remember and hard to use. Try to have fewer than 25 letters.
