President José Padilla has charged the mascot committee to solicit, organize and review suggestions from the University community for the name of a new mascot or nickname for Valparaiso University.
From the review of these submissions, the committee will send President Padilla up to four recommended mascots or nicknames for consideration. The recommendations must reflect the values, spirit and character of Valparaiso University and must have the support of at least 70% of the 10-person committee.
President Padilla will select the new mascot or nickname from among the recommendations the committee submits for consideration.
