Gov Hochul Says SUNY Campuses To Update Their Policies Regarding Pronouns

Albany, N.Y. - Governor Kathy Hochul has announced that all 64 SUNY campuses have been directed to update their policies regarding the use of a chosen name and pronouns.

They say its an effort to ensure that transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary students' identities are fully reflected and represented in campus systems. Their chosen name will appear on college diplomas, campus profiles, and more.

This comes after Hochul's recent announcement that New Yorkers can select 'X' as a gender marker on their driver's license and now SUNY students will be able to select 'X' when asked to provide gender by the college.
