Pronouns

The UW hopes to introduce an option in the future for students to identify pronouns to be displayed on class rosters and in Canvas.

International Pronouns Day

Celebrate gender identity and respectful pronoun use on International Pronouns Day, which “seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace.” Demonstrate your support throughout the year by using pronouns respectfully. Doing so cultivates a safer, more inclusive, and welcoming community for everyone, regardless of gender identity or expression. Here are several ways to do so:

  • Introduce yourself with your pronouns
  • Practice the use of gender-neutral pronouns
  • Rehearse how you recover from mistakes (we all make them!)
  • Add your pronouns to your email signature
  • Share on social media using #HuskyExperience #PronounsDay
