Common technology services at UC Davis will soon display your lived name and gender, or the name and gender you want to be known by, especially if they are different from your legal name.
Whether you are a trans or non-binary student, an international student who uses a chosen name, or a member of the campus community who uses a professional name, you will be able to add your lived name and gender to your online campus presence.
Information and Educational Technology (IET) teams are working to update technology platforms at UC Davis to ensure that accurate gender and lived names are collected, displayed, and utilized in all campus interactions. This page reflects our progress while the Gender Recognition and Lived Name (GRLN) initiative is underway. Please check back for updates.
Note: The technology ecosystem at UC Davis is broad. The university is working towards solutions to ensure that lived names appear seamlessly for all students, employees, alumni and affiliates across all university systems. In the meantime, separate updates are required for each system, not all systems are available for updating yet, and processes and timelines may differ across groups.
