Pronouns

 

Updating Pronouns in MySJSU

In SJSU’s continuing efforts to promote belonging and inclusion, it is important to recognize the significance of language in how we communicate with each other.  Everyone has the right to self-identify with whichever pronoun they feel comfortable, or, the right to decline to identify altogether.    

Starting Monday, Nov 2, 2020, you can indicate your pronouns in MySJSU. Your selected pronouns will appear on Class Rosters and the Advisor Center.

You may update your pronouns at any time throughout the year; however, please be sure to select your pronouns before the end of the previous semester so that it is reflected on the rosters for the next term.
