Name/Pronoun Advocacy

Name and Pronoun advocacy is a vital resource for trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming students. Each new term, students can be stressed out about classroom rosters and having teachers and students respect their name and gender identity. The QRC is offering advocacy for students whose name or pronoun is different from what the University may provide to faculty for Classroom Rosters. By filling out the information in the form below, our Trans Student Resources and Retention Coordinator will email instructors to advise them of your name and pronoun along with a way to contact us if they have further questions.

Only the QRC Director, QRC Trans Student Resources and Retention Coordinator, and the QRC Office Manager have access to the information provided here. This information will not be shared with anyone beyond the instructors you designate and only for the purposes of advocating needs in the classroom.

In the event that instructors do not check their PSU email, or do not receive or read the advocacy email, please contact us at psutrans@pdx.edu or 503-725-9742 to arrange for further advocacy. PSU prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression. Any questions about PSU’s Prohibited Discrimination & Harassment policy can be directed to the Office of Global Diversity and Inclusion. Share complaints by e-mail at diversity@pdx.edu or telephone number 503-725-5919.
