Students and employees on all campuses are now able to share personal pronouns and/or a gender identity through the “My Info” tab of MyU. Sharing personal pronouns and/or a gender identity is optional. Students’ pronouns will be available in several places where student data is made available to University instructors, advisers, and other employees. Gender identity is not shared with class instructors or other campus partners, including health services.
An increase in demand for stress management services at the University of Minnesota led to the creation of a new program last spring that hopes to expand its aid to students in the fall.
In April, the Office for Student Affairs created the OSA Care Program, which supports students and provides them with resources to navigate the University. The program is using the summer to find ways to accommodate students for the upcoming academic year.
