Pronouns In Use

Pronouns are how a person wants to be referred to in the third person. We share our pronouns with others and ask them to do the same so that we do not assume how people want to be referred to in the third person, thus avoiding instances of misgendering. By respecting others’ pronouns, you recognize their sense of self and affirm the humanity of all members of our SEAS community. Examples of pronouns include, but are not limited to:

ze/hir/hirs, and other gender neutral pronouns.
