English Language Center Pronoun Guide

This guide was developed as a supplement to What Should I Call YOU: Faculty Modeling Vanderbilt’s Commitment to Gender Inclusivity and Awareness by the Vanderbilt University Faculty Senate Gender Inclusivity Task Force with input from LGBTQI Life. The Vanderbilt University English Language Center (ELC) created this pronoun guide as part of our mission to address the professional, academic, and practical language needs of students who have a first language other than English. The ELC hopes this guide will not only provide English-language learners the opportunity to better understand and participate in this campus initiative, but will also help them make informed choices regarding their own pronoun usage.
