Colgate to Launch Personal Gender Pronoun Service
In April of 2016, Colgate University will introduce a service that allows students, staff and faculty to share their personal gender pronouns in the school's data system. Once entered, pronouns will appear along with your name on professors' course rosters and administrative dean web-based dashboards. Download this foldable table tent Guide to Personal Gender Pronouns
to display on your desk or personal workspace.
Further information, including what a personal gender pronoun is, how to add or change your pronoun, and other trans and non-binary resources at Colgate, can be found on our Trans@Colgate
Safe Zone Follow this link to request a safe zone training.
This training, open to faculty, staff, and students, aims to create a supportive campus climate by encouraging conversation around gender identity and sexual orientation, homophobia, heterosexism, and various oppressions. By educating members of the campus community about current LGBTQ-related issues, members of the campus community can be more prepared to provide support and resources on LGBTQ and Ally concerns. Any person or group can request a Safe Zone training by following the link above.
