Personal pronouns are the ways we refer to each other in the third person (for example, “he/him/his,” “she/her/hers,” “they/their/theirs,” etc.) All students, faculty and staff can update their personal pronouns in MySlice by following these instructions. To learn more about personal pronouns, including suggestions for how to ask someone what their pronouns are, review this FAQ on Answers.
“The Pronoun, Gender and Preferred Name Advisory Council (PGPNAC) is pleased to see the option to display personal pronouns on Zoom, making the platform even more helpful for students, faculty and staff who frequently use it to teach, learn and stay connected,” says Jenny Gluck, associate chief information officer, Academic Technology Services, and PGPNAC co-chair. “Affirming and correctly using someone’s personal pronouns is a matter of basic human respect and the new Zoom feature makes it simple to do so in a virtual environment.”
