    Hasbrouck building complex renaming dialogue : report and recommendation
    "After extensive research, data review, and conversations with students, faculty, staff, community members, representatives of Historic Huguenot Street, descendants of Huguenot families, and alumni, the SUNY New Paltz Diversity and Inclusion Council has determined that the Hasbrouck Complex buildings should be renamed. This decision was widely supported by the members of the Council but it was not unanimous. The Council embodies a range of perspectives regarding documenting, interpreting, and commemorating histories. Our diversity is indicative of the complexity of our charge. There was consensus, however, that the current names have a deep impact on the lives of students who reside, eat, and create community in the Hasbrouck Complex buildings. There was also consensus that SUNY New Paltz's mission as an educational institution places upon us a duty to give expression to previously marginalized histories, to approach history through a lens of critical inquiry, and to understand our past in all its rich diversity without simply replacing one history with another." -- from the executive summary, page 3 Members: Members of the Diversity and Inclusion Council: Tanhena Pacheco Dunn, Assoc.
