Pronoun Use at Temple University

To foster diversity and create a sense of belonging for the Temple community, the university recognizes the importance of providing students, faculty, staff and alumni the option to indicate their pronouns in university systems. Pronouns enable community members to be reflected appropriately in university systems and help to ensure they are referred to appropriately by peers, instructors and administrators.

Beginning in the fall 2021 term, students, faculty, staff and alumni can update their pronouns in the Manage My Account section of TUportal. This function will allow students, faculty, staff and alumni to display pronouns in designated systems (see ‘Use in Administrative Systems’ section below for details).
