As of Feb. 9, 2023, the CU Board of Regents approved the renaming of the Fleming Building to honor the lasting legacies and contributions of former CU Boulder School of Education faculty members Ofelia Miramontes and Leonard Baca. Learn more about their inspiring legacies.


Our School of Education is facing a unique opportunity to consider community nominations for the honorary renaming of our campus building. 

Our school moved to a newly renovated campus home in 2020. As the next phase of the remodel and fundraising efforts continue, we have a historic opportunity to rename our building currently known as the Fleming Building, a name that belonged to a former Law School Dean from when the building housed the Law School.

Together with a committee of alumni, donors, faculty, staff and students, we have established an honorary naming nomination process, and we invite you to submit nominations by Monday, Nov. 28, 2022.
