For many trans and gender variant students, notifying your professors of your name and pronouns, and/or of your trans status/identity can be difficult. There are many ways to do this: one-on-one conversations, personal emails, and/or the LGBTQ Center can notify your faculty members and staff advisers on your behalf. Please do what works best for you in your life at this time. If you would prefer to talk to your professors one-on-one or send a personal email, we are happy to talk through that process or review your email if that would be helpful for you.
To request letters to be sent by the LGBTQ Center, please complete this form. This letter will contain only the information you ask us to share (name, pronouns, etc.) and will include a list of best practices your faculty member or staff adviser can follow in order to support you and create an inclusive environment.
