Gender Neutral Language

Effective August 31, 2009

UI&U adheres to a policy of using gender neutral language in all communications generated by any part of the institution. UI&U believes that this practice is dictated by the university mission and values.

Students are encouraged to use gender neutral language in all work related to their UI&U programs, recognizing that a student’s decision as to whether to use gender specific terms will depend on the subject matter.
