Fair use rationale for Image:French university icon.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:French university icon.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Name of the university[edit]

Université des Antilles de de la Guyane refers to itself on its English language welcome page for foreign students (retrieved 2008-08-22) as University of the French West Indies and Guiana.

The choice of English language name is not entirely clear cut because the university also uses the name French West Indies University in the title of its pages when navigating in English (retrieved on 2008-08-22).

Please also see the naming guidelines for French universities.

As I understand it, the campuses in French Guiana have definitely separated and are now an independent institution which, I am making an assumption, will need an article entitled University of French Guiana. But I'm not sure what has developed in Martinique and Guadeloupe. Is UAG simply continuing here renamed? is it's status still evolving as a consequence of the split with French Guiana? The Université des Antilles does not appear to have a website yet for example. There is also a question of how the name is translated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:08, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Website for UAG has been updated to refer to the institution (inconsistently) as Université des Antilles. There is still no preference I can find for what name, if any, will be commonly used in English to refer to it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:31, 4 December 2015 (UTC)
