What’s the New Acronym ENPRC?

In a recent announcement, President Fenves communicated decisions of the names reviewed by the University Committee on Naming Honors. The University Committee on Naming Honors was tasked with examining new historic names and reviewing contested historic names that honor individuals at Emory. The Committee submitted their 2021 report to President Fenves last spring. 

One of President Fenves’ decisions included renaming the Yerkes National Primate Research Center to the Emory National Primate Research Center (ENPRC). 

To learn more about the names reviewed by the Committee, Emory Libraries developed a Naming Honors Research Guide which provides additional resources on Emory affiliated figures.
