MVCC and the LGBTQ Committee has been hard at work to institute policy and procedure for students to officially declare a "preferred name." Students may want to be referred to by a name other than their legal name for various reasons. What does this mean, and how does this affect various departments at the college? Why is this important to transgender students in particular? This session will help faculty and staff to navigate this issue and provide a supportive environment in their classrooms and offices.
