Florida State Panel Does Not Recommend Changing Doak Campbell Stadium Name

A Florida State University task force voting against recommending a name change to Doak Campbell Stadium on Wednesday.

According to Byron Dobson of the Tallahassee Democrat, the presidential task force focusing on anti-racism, equity and inclusion voted against the measure by a 12-7 margin.

FSU was a segregated school under Campbell's presidency from 1941 to 1957, and research from FSU history professor Maxine Jones found he discouraged protests against those rules and criticism of them in the student newspaper during his tenure.
