The Renaming of Calhoun College

On Saturday, February 11th, President Salovey announced that Calhoun College would be renamed in honor of Rear Admiral Grace Hopper '30MA '34PhD. We have posted the full text of the announcement below. You may also be interested in the Yale Daily News article on the change, "Calhoun College Renamed."

To the Yale Alumni Community,

Today I write to announce that the name of Calhoun College will be changed, and that we will honor one of Yale’s most distinguished graduates, Grace Murray Hopper ’30 M.A., ’34 Ph.D., by renaming the college for her. The university’s board of trustees—the Yale Corporation—and I made this decision at our most recent meeting. The decision to change a college’s name is not one we take lightly, but John C. Calhoun’s legacy as a white supremacist and a national leader who passionately promoted slavery as a “positive good” fundamentally conflicts with Yale’s mission and values. I have asked Jonathan Holloway, dean of Yale College, and Julia Adams, the head of Calhoun College, to determine when this change best can be put into effect.

Yale still feels like home.  And I am happy to report that our campus and its community have experienced an extraordinary revitalization.
