Abstract

This integrative analysis will assess the case study of Towson University and the renaming of campus buildings that do not align with the institution's mission regarding its "commitment to diversity and inclusion" ("Mission & Strategic Plan," 2017). The case study will be analyzed using the following organizational theories: Structural/Bureaucratic, Collegial/Human Resource, Political, and Cultural/Symbolic perspectives. The authors have provided recommendations on how to resolve the issue of the renaming of buildings at Towson University.
