Charlotte is committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive campus environment as a foundation for your success! We recognize that a legal name or assigned sex isn’t always a good fit for everyone, and that there are many reasons one might use a name, gender identity, or pronouns that is different from their legal name or assigned sex.
Pronouns take the place of a noun (person, place, or thing) and are used in everyday speaking and writing. We strive to create a personal experience by providing opportunities for every member of our community to get to know each other better.
- One of the many ways we are doing this is by allowing you to share your “personal pronouns” which can be used, in emails, in classrooms, and in everyday conversation.
- We appreciate your patience as we are rolling out this functionality across the multiple systems on campus.
- As systems are updated to include personal pronouns, we will post them here.
We encourage you to make your pronoun selections!
For general information about the use of pronouns and why sharing pronouns matters, please visit the Office of Diversity & Inclusion.
How do I update my personal information (for example: preferred first name, pronouns, address, etc.)?
- Log in to MyCharlotte
- Under My Tasks / Announcements, select Personal Information
- Finally, select the Personal Information box
- You will then be redirected to your profile where you are free to review, add, or update your personal information
Can I delete or change my pronouns and/or gender identity after saving?
You can return to MyCharlotte at any time to update your pronouns and/or gender identity. This includes deleting or changing your original selections.
Do I have to share my pronouns?
No. While we encourage those who are comfortable to share their pronouns, we recognize that not everyone may be comfortable with doing so. This could be for an array of reasons including not feeling safe to do so, exploring pronouns for themselves, or fear of being outed by peers, faculty, or staff.
Where will my information be displayed?
Your information is used or planned for use in several ways. For a complete list of these systems, communications, both current and planned, please visit the Know Me Project. There are no planned displays of gender identity at this time.
What if I refer to someone using the wrong pronouns?
While we encourage those who are comfortable to share their pronouns, we recognize that not everyone may be comfortable with doing so. This could be for an array of reasons including not feeling safe to do so, exploring pronouns for themselves, or fear of being outed by peers, faculty, or staff.
