Avoid using "McCoy" as a standalone name or label. To prevent confusion with the McCoy family or McCoy's Building Supply, always refer to the college as the McCoy College of Business or simply McCoy College. Always use "McCoy College dean" or "McCoy College students," etc. — never use "McCoy dean" or "McCoy students."

Exceptions are allowable on social media only where character-limits make the shortened form absolutely necessary.
