Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity

Pronouns

Duke University is committed to working towards an affirming campus community for students, staff, faculty and alumnx with marginalized gender identities and gender expressions. Language, including the thoughtful and conscientious use of pronouns, is one important step towards an affirming campus. We encourage all members of our community to share and ask others for their pronouns.  

This page includes a number of resources designed to aid the Duke community in the thoughtful and valued practice of sharing and asking for pronouns. We invite you to connect with us if you have any questions or would like to speak further.
