DIII Capital University (Columbus, Ohio) is changing their Crusader Mascot as well. Guessing there is going to be a ground swell for this country wide.

RE: D1 School Bans Team Name
Northwest Nazarene (D2 - GNAC) changed from Crusaders to Nighthawks in October 2017. The men's golf team was in the middle of a competition at the time the nickname was changed.

Quote:President Joel Pearsall announced Northwest Nazarene University's new mascot in chapel this morning.

Over the past several years, Northwest Nazarene University's Board of Trustees has discussed and considered the possibility of changing the university's institutional nickname and mascot. In 2016, the board appointed a task force composed of NNU trustees, alumni (one of whom serves as a missionary), students, representatives of NNU athletics, and faculty members. The task force met several times and delivered a report to the board during spring semester 2017. After further consideration at the fall 2017 meeting, the board voted unanimously to change the university's nickname and mascot from "Crusaders" to "Nighthawks".

The Board of Trustees acknowledged that a crusader was historically understood as one who is committed to a worthy cause. However, the board observed that more recently there has been a growing diversity of opinion regarding the mascot and nickname. Students, campus community members, and alumni have expressed concern with the nickname and mascot because of its association with violence and destruction. This led the university in 2006 to retain the nickname of "Crusaders" but stop using the image of a crusader as its mascot and deemphasize the term within the athletic department and around campus.

The board concluded that a nickname and mascot should serve as a name and image around which students and alumni may rally—most often in an athletic context. They sensed that a nickname and mascot should not detract from the achievement of the university's mission and values. In the context of the current day, the board concluded that the historical nickname and mascot is easily misunderstood and may impede the university's ability to minister in an increasingly-interconnected global community.

Regarding a new nickname and mascot, the board determined it was wisest to look to the geographical area in which NNU is located and select an animal common to the area but not already used as a mascot and nickname by other schools. Therefore, the board selected the nighthawk.

This change will be immediate, but it will take time for uniforms and merchandise to reflect the new image. The board also requested that references to "Crusaders" be retained on trophies and banners that are part of our campus historical displays.

As we turn this new page in our history, we remain committed to our mission and excited for our future as Nighthawks!

There is a reason schools picked tigers, vikings, pirates, etc... and it isn't because they were perceived as good people or nice animals. Or better yet why it is Fighting Okra and not just Okra.

Columbia College, SC, is known as the Koalas. :D Of course, they were a women's college up until this year.

This is what the interim president said. She uses The Crusader being a name of a KKK paper as a reason. However, when you google “The Crusader Newspaper”, the first result is an African-American newspaper and nothing about the KKK one shows up (meaning you’d only find it if you were specifically looking for it).

There were instances when the Crusaders slaughtered innocent people. If I recall the 1st or 2nd time they took Jerusalem the Crusaders slaughtered all the inhabitants of Jurusalem including noncombatants of Muslim and jewish faith. It was war fueled by the capture of the Holy Land from Muslim rule.

Valpo twitter + forums are fairly livid. They’re saying the current student president (who’s now bragging on national media outlets) has been using this to springboard her aspiring political career. She admitted in the Tribune to taking advantage of this time period with an interim president to make her move.

Due to similarity, I image that mascot is next. The Crusaders were all members of the Knight Templar for the most part.

Most crusaders were not knights and the majority were peasants. Knights Templar were the largest religious knights but there were the Teutonic Knights and Hospitaller Knights (St Johns). Many knights were under direction of Nobles who took up the crusade and not afiliated with a religious order like the Knights Templar.

Should renamed them to Valporaiso Sissies since they are a bunch of sissies who are offended by a word that has nothing to do with slavery.
