URegina asks community for help in renaming Language Institute Building

December 4, 2017

The University of Regina says it will rename the Language Institute Building in order to better reflect what happens at its learning centre. CBC reports that while the building was once used exclusively for the study of the French language, it has since become a hub where people can study all disciplines in French. “The more provocative way to cast it or describe the process is to say oh, the name is not french enough,” said Emmanuel Aito, the director of La Cité Universitaire Francophone and the chair of the renaming committee. “A more realistic perspective is ​to admit that the activities in the building have evolved.” The university has reached out to faculty, staff, students, and the broader community for suggestions on the centre’s new name. CBC
