Chosen Name Policy

Posted on August 28, 2016 | Filed under General News

The College is beginning to implement a new “Chosen Name” policy. This policy supports students seeking to change their first name without pursuing a legal name change and follows guidelines issued recently by the Department of Education. Reasons for name changes may include transgender or gender non-conforming identities and international students who wish to adopt an English language name.

The first implementation of this policy, taking place for fall 2016, will be updates to WebAdvisor, Sakai, and student email addresses. For students who requested the use of a chosen name, WebAdvisor will show the chosen name in parentheses next to the legal name (e.g., Smith, Susan (Steven), or Du, Yongtao (Alex)). On Sakai and in e-mail addresses, a student’s Chosen Name will appear instead of their legal first name.

For faculty and others who use these student lists: please use the chosen name (e.g., for calling attendance, class discussions, conversation with a student) and accept the chosen name wherever names are used, including the Honor Pledge. To preserve student confidentiality, please do not use the student’s legal name or discuss student name changes in front of other students or staff.

Students: if you would like to use a chosen name, please contact the Dean of Students office at

If you have questions about this policy, please contact the Dean of Students Kimberly Ferguson; the Director of the IDEAS Center justin adkins, or Registrar and Associate Dean Ian Binnington.

Reading Group for Natural Science Faculty – Fall 2016

Posted on May 26, 2016 | Filed under General News

The associate provost would like to invite interested natural science faculty to participate in a reading group focused on enhancing student success in the sciences.

Achieving these types of goals will require us to harness the potential of all students, forcing us to identify and acknowledge the barriers encountered by students from traditionally underrepresented groups.
