Pronouns and gender identity

Add your personal pronouns and/or gender identity to your student record through MyU: My Info (see step by step instructions). You can also enable your personal pronouns in Zoom and add them to your Canvas profile.

Personal pronouns

When you confirmed your enrollment to the University, some of your personal information, like your name, ID number, and demographic information, was made available to the University employees who work with you, including staff, faculty and some student employees.

If you decide to share your personal pronouns in MyU, your pronouns will be included along with other information provided to University employees.

Examples of where your personal pronouns will be available:

  • The class roster provided to instructors and staff including your photo
  • The student record in University systems that advisors and other student services staff use to work with you (Advisor Center, APLUS, and PeopleSoft)

If you decide to add your personal pronouns to Zoom or Canvas, they will appear separately in these systems and will not be shared anywhere else.

Gender identity

Gender identity is not shared with class instructors or other campus partners, including health services. Authorized University employees with access to your bio-demographic information will also have access to view your gender identity.  

Parents or guests who have been granted access to your student account will not see your personal pronouns or gender identity when accessing your student account.  

For more about gender identity, visit the Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life website.
