OVC Non-Gendered Class Year Usage Guidelines
The MIT Chancellor’s Office (including DSL and OVC) has adopted non-gendered language in official documents, publications, and digital and other communications channels. The Non-Gendered Class Year Usage Guidelines clarify and provide helpful examples of terminology and usage. We encourage you to adopt these practices in your office communications and everyday usage.
