International Pronouns Day
The Center for Diversity and Inclusion supports and endorses International Pronouns Day which seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity and aligns directly with our Jesuit value of Cura Personalis. Together, we can transform our campus and communities to celebrate people’s multiple and intersecting identities.
