White Pages, SIS, TuftsAlert, Name Change, Preferred Pronouns
Tufts University has adopted a Preferred Name Policy. Members of our community (students, faculty, staff, and alumni) may now select a preferred name on certain university systems—including the White Pages and @tufts.edu email, as well as on class and grade rosters—in place of their legal name.
You may wish to take advantage of this new option in a variety of circumstances, including:
to select a name that better reflects your gender identity;
to select a name that better reflects your marital status (married name, maiden name, hyphenated name, etc.); and/or
to select a nickname, professional name or other variant that better reflects your personal identity.
