To aid in inclusive education, it is important to make space for students to adjust their name and establish their pronouns to assert their identity as a student in your classroom. Canvas not only allows you to adjust your name but also select the pronouns you would like to use to appear next to your name. This message informs students of these options in settings so they can adjust how their identity is presented within their digital courses.
If pronouns are not enabled in your Canvas instance, your system admin can follow these steps to make pronouns visible to those who opt-in to displaying them. https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Admin-Guide/How-do-I-enable-personal-pronouns-in-an-account/ta-p/185
