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.
The OVC Newsletter is published quarterly to keep staff up to date on news and events from offices and programs throughout OVC. We welcome your submissions! All staff receive periodic email messages inviting them to contribute content via a Google form, along with submission guidelines. Questions? Contact Elizabeth Durant, OVC communications officer.
