A $3 million gift to help fund a new building that will house a multicultural center at the University of Michigan is being withdrawn over concern about whose name will appear on it.
The current center is named after William Monroe Trotter and is the only building on the school's Ann Arbor campus named after a black person.
School regent Mark Bernstein and his wife, Rachel Bendit, made the donation. In April, regents approved naming the new building Bernstein-Bendit Hall.
President Mark Schlissel told regents Thursday that some students, faculty and staff disagree with removing Trotter's name.
Schlissel said Bernstein and Bendit "were withdrawing their name and gift out of respect of the William Monroe Trotter name on the new building."
A school spokesman said the project will continue.
