Some members of the Connecticut College community are known by a name that is different from their legal name. Students, faculty, and staff may enter a preferred first name by using the Preferred Name/Pronouns link on the navigation menu in CamelWeb and the CC Mobile App: that name will appear as your name in most College systems.
Preferred name is used in the online campus directory, class lists, grade reports, course schedules, Moodle, CamelLink, CamelWeb, and College photo ID (upon request). Legal name will always appear on all external reports and documents including, but not limited to, paychecks, accounts payable checks, student billing, CCPay and tax forms. Legal name will only be changed when students pursue a legal name change with their home state and/or federal authorities and then submit that documentation to the Office of the Registrar.
Faculty and Staff
Preferred names of staff and faculty are collected and displayed on designated internal campus communications, documents, and electronic sources such as the online directory, Moodle, and College Photo IDs (upon request). Legal names always appear on all external reports and documents including, but not limited to, transcripts, paychecks, accounts payable checks, student billing, CCPay, and tax forms. Legal names will only be changed when employees pursue a legal name change with state and/or federal authorities and then submit that documentation to human resources.
Connecticut College has endeavored to display preferred names to the College community where feasible and has made a good faith effort to update the reports, documents, and systems that are designated to use a preferred name. In the event that your preferred name is not displaying correctly, please contact the appropriate office: the Office of the Registrar for students, and Human Resources for faculty and staff.
Pronouns have an implied gender, so rather than assuming which pronoun to use, we can ask, so people feel respected for who they are, and we can help build a more inclusive community.
Students, faculty, and staff can choose and share their pronouns within the college community by using the Preferred Name/Pronouns link on the navigation menu in CamelWeb and the CC Mobile App.
Gender pronouns will appear in the internal directory located in CamelWeb and the CC Mobile App. If none are selected, or if “Not Applicable” is selected, no pronouns will display for that individual. Gender pronouns will also display in Moodle for faculty on the class participants page.
