Johns Hopkins University offers students, faculty, and staff the option of using a set of pronouns within select university systems.
Pronouns are how we refer to each other in the third person and serve as a reflection of gender identity and expression. Similar to using chosen name, respecting the pronouns of a student, faculty or staff member supports a positive and inclusive campus culture.
JHU reserves the right to remove a pronoun selection for any reason, including misrepresentation or the use of inappropriate, offensive or derogatory language.
This information applies to all schools and campuses at JHU, except where indicated.
