Preferred Name Option
Beginning Fall 2011, BSU officially implemented a preferred name option in Banner, the student records database. With this initiative, students have the option to use their preferred name on certain university records where legal name is not required.
Policy details are located in the Student Handbook.
The Pride Center would like to thank the many people involved
with initiating a preferred name option at BSU. Alphabetically, they are:
The Diversity Council
Dr. Dave Ostroth, VP of Student Affairs
The Pride Center Ambassadors
The Pride Coalition
Student Government Association
Transgender Advocacy Group
We also would like to thank President Dr. Dana Mohler-Faria and his cabinet, as well as the dedicated staff in Information Technology, for making a preferred name option possible at BSU.
