RICHMOND, Va. - The board of trustees at the University of Richmond says it will resume the process of reviewing the controversial names of two campus buildings.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports the board said Monday that it would form a commission to establish principles on renaming, ensuring what it called a “fresh start.”

The announcement came two hours before the faculty senate announced it had ratified a vote of no-confidence in the board’s top member, rector Paul Queally, calling for him to resign.

The faculty senate censured Queally for comments during a meeting in which seven members of the faculty said he referred to students as Black, Brown and “regular students.”
