Preferred Name & Preferred Gender Pronouns
SPSCC is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive classroom. Class rosters are provided to instructors with students' legal names. However, in class, I will gladly address you by an alternate name or gender pronoun. To have your name changed in class you can talk to me directly. To have your name changed in all of your courses in Canvas, please go to Student Life (Bldg 27, upstairs). You must bring a form of ID with you when you request your name change.
