Preferred Names, Personal Pronouns & Name Coach

Name Coach

Did you know that your students are able to enter their pronouns, as well as the pronunciation of their name, to Canvas through Name Coach? Please direct students to this link for more information on the process

Many institutions are starting to use Name Coach to ensure students are properly identified in class. For more information on how to use Name Coach to learn students’ names and pronouns, we suggest watching this helpful video that Yale University created for its faculty.

Personal Pronoun Guide

For more information on personal pronouns and links to further educational resources, please view the Personal Pronoun Guide created by Student Equity

Preferred Names

Because Long Beach City College seeks to provide an inclusive and non-discriminatory environment, LBCC students, including transgender and gender non-conforming students, may opt to identify themselves with a preferred name that is different from their legal first name. Please direct students to the section on Preferred Names for more information about how to set up their preferred names.
