The University of North Florida recognizes that many students, faculty, and staff prefer to use names other than their legal names to identify themselves. As long as the use of a preferred name is not for the purpose of misrepresentation, UNF acknowledges that a preferred name should be used whenever possible in the course of university business and education. In order to provide a safe, inclusive and nondiscriminatory community, UNF faculty and staff should use a student’s preferred name.
Currently, students can update their Display Name in Canvas with a preferred name. Both a student’s legal name and preferred name remain under the same N number so you can reconcile any differences by always referring to the N numbers on all class rosters. These instructions are intended to provide additional guidance on how to reference both your Canvas rosters and the Class Roster in MyWings.
