The Chippewa Name
The Central Michigan University Board of Trustees has approved the continued use of the name "Chippewas" in association with CMU. The university's goals are to use the name with honor and respect, increase supportive connections between CMU and Native Americans, and improve efforts to sensitize students, faculty, and staff to Native American traditions and cultures.
Media representatives have been extremely cooperative as we have worked to address this important issue. In nearly all cases, print and broadcast reporters have supported CMU's efforts to eliminate the use of symbols, headlines, and copy that present inappropriate and inaccurate images of Native Americans.
Central Michigan University is grateful for your help, and we ask for your continued cooperation and sensitivity. With your assistance, we can continue to use the Chippewa name with dignity and respect.
