The goal of Ball State University is to create an open and inclusive campus community that values the intrinsic worth of all students, faculty, and staff. As part of our mission, Ball State University recognizes that pronouns are used in place of people’s names. A personal pronoun is a pronoun an individual chooses to identify with and expects others to use when referencing them (he, she, him, his, ze, etc.).
