Happy New Year! I hope that your break was restoring and that the new quarter is off to a good start.
I’m writing to encourage you to review the online FAQ about personal pronouns. Beginning this quarter, personal pronouns will appear next to student names on class lists and photo rosters for those students who have indicated their pronouns in Web4U. Addressing students and colleagues using the indicated pronouns is an important step toward fostering a respectful and inclusive university community.
Faculty can also indicate pronoun preference and gender identity via the Personal Information page on Web4u.
Thank you for making Western a better place… Jeff
