Preferred Name/Gender Identity

Do you have a preferred name and/or preferred gender identity?

Employees and students can select their preferred name (first and/or middle) as well as preferred gender identity. A preferred name is not a legal name, but it is how the individual wishes to be addressed.

No documentation is needed to update a preferred name or preferred gender identity.
