Kirkwood Pride

Kirkwood Pride is Kirkwood’s student group for LGBTQIA+ people and allies. We’re all about providing a positive environment and a place to share concerns. This safe, welcoming environment promotes awareness, equality, and acceptance and educates the campus community about LGBTQIA+ issues.

Names & Pronouns

To update your name and pronoun, log into MyHub and click on the Name and Gender options in the My Profile section. Records will updated within 5 to 7 business days.

If you change your preferred name and encounter your dead name elsewhere in the system, it may be a glitch. For example, some students have found that their dead name is still presented when logging on to campus computers. If this happens to you, please contact Pride and we will get in touch with the people who can fix it.

There are some places where Kirkwood has to use the legal name because of legal requirements. You can read about those here.

If your legal name changes, you'll need to complete a Name Change form. You can access them here under the Forms tab.

You can learn more about Kirkwood’s legal name policy in this video. Please note: the name/prounoun change is now done through MyHub, not EagleNet.

You can have your EagleCard reissued (without the usual $10 charge) to update your name or to retake your picture to reflect your current gender presentation.
