Pronoun Guidance

Vanderbilt Faculty Senate, with support from Vanderbilt Student Government and trans/non-binary students on campus worked to develop resources to give guidance on gender inclusivity in the classroom. For general guidance on gender inclusivity, please see the Center for Teaching’s resource, “Teaching Beyond the Binary in the University Classroom.”

Below is an additional resource developed by this groups to give guidance on pronouns. LGBTQI Life has copies of this poster available if you would like to pick one up.

Please note that if a student, staff, or community member tells you that they do not want to disclose their pronouns or do not wish their pronouns to be public knowledge, you can continually refer to that person by their name only.
