Stop ULL from calling themselves The University of Louisiana
Sign this petition if you think the UL System should force ULL to stop calling themselves UL or the University of Louisiana. The University of Louisiana System established rules for naming Universities in their system in September of 1998. There rules can be found at: http://www.ulsystem.net/assets/docs/searchable/boards/M-%20(2)_name_change_policies.pdf. In their rules it states that "The use of the two-letter University of Louisiana abbreviation, “UL,” and/or the phrase “U of L” are prohibited by the university or any of its affiliated organizations (alumni associations, development foundations, bookstores, etc.). For academic, public relations, athletic, as well as other purposes not specified, the use of the University of Louisiana abbreviation must always include the abbreviation for the municipal location of the institution. For example, ULR is appropriate for University of Louisiana at Rayne". The rules also states that no school should refer to themselves as The University of Louisiana. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette does this on almost all publication and should be stopped. Sign this petition if you believe that The UL system should enforce these rules from NAME CHANGE POLICIES AND GUIDELINES and punish ULL if they continue to break these rules.
