Tracking Student Identity Preferences: Summary Results of the AACRAO March 2015 60 Second Survey
American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO)
This AACRAO "60 Second Survey" asked respondents to identify how, if at all, their institution enables students to indicate their identity preferences--including preferred pronouns, preferred gender, and preferred name. Respondents reporting were from 880 unique institutions representing 16 countries, commonwealths or territories, all 50 states plus DC, and 9 Canadian provinces, as well as a variety of institutional types, control and sizes. Based on the comments, the ability to track student identity preference is a hot and active topic for many institutions. Some of the respondent results indicated that only 10.3% (n = 90) of institutions allow students to select their preferred pronouns, two-thirds indicated "No" (n = 580), and a further 23.5% were uncertain about the practice. Another 14% chose to provide other options not listed in the survey. The following are appended: (1) Survey Instrument; (2) Count of Respondent by Country, Commonwealth, or Territory and State or Province, if applicable; (3) Count of Respondent by Institution Type and Control; (4) Count of Respondent by Institution Size and Control; (5) Count of Respondent by Institution Size and Type; (6) Select Responses for Other Available Pronouns; (7) Select Responses for Other Available Genders; (8) Select Responses to Other Uses of Preferred Name; (9) Other Mechanisms Through Which a Student Can Indicate His/Her Preferred Name; and (10) Additional Comments.
