Preferred Names & Pronouns

HSU offers students, staff, and faculty the option to use a name other than their legal name to identify themselves if that is their preference. The University will then use that preferred name wherever possible unless legal requirements mandate the use of the legal name. Students can also specify their preferred pronouns, which will show up on class rosters for faculty and in Canvas.

Take a look at the short video below to understand why this option is important for student wellbeing, then scroll down to learn how to make these changes to your own records.
