    • Explore the ways in which gender and pronoun fields are stored and used in Colleague and auxiliary systems across campus
    • Recommend a plan for collecting preferred pronoun information from students, faculty and staff
    • Determine which – if any – non-binary gender identity terms will be utilized in our data system
    • Be able to articulate to students and employees the ways in which gender and pronouns are used and can be changed
    • Be able to articulate to students and employees the situations in which preferred pronouns and gender identity cannot be used (i.e., times where “legal sex” must be recorded and reported)
