Naming Opportunities

In keeping with Board Process Policy A-106.00, the Board of Trustees of Northwestern Michigan College shall reserve the right to be involved in the decision-making process, to deliberate and evaluate options, and to approve naming opportunities for buildings and/or major portions of buildings.

The College may, from time-to-time, honor or memorialize certain individuals or organizations in recognition of extraordinary contributions to the College. These contributions may include financial gifts, time and talent devoted to the College by community members, or distinguished service on the part of faculty and staff. The appropriate recognition opportunities will be identified by executive staff and recommended by the president to the Board of Trustees.

If any provision(s) of this policy or set of bylaws conflicts with laws applicable to Northwestern Michigan College, including the Community College Act of 1966, the Freedom of Information Act, or the Open Meetings Act, as each may be amended from time to time, such laws shall control and supersede such provision(s).
