In 1995, Donor gave $500,000 to University. In 2000, Donor
pledged another $100 million to University to construct a new state-of-the-art
hockey facility for the school and possibly fund another program. Well into the
construction of the facility, controversy erupted concerning whether University
should change its nickname, the “Fighting Sioux,” and its logo, a majestic
Indian head that was designed three years ago by a highly regarded Native
American artist. University is one of the country’s leading schools in Native
American studies and graduates an estimated 25 percent of the Native American
doctors in the United States. The controversy arose when a group of white and
Native American students and nonstudents protested the nickname and logo. The
controversy was only heightened after Donor entered the fray. Donor threatened
to halt construction if the school did not retain the name and logo. As legal
counsel for 239 University, how would you advise University to proceed? Are
there ethical issues to consider?
