Carleton College Information Technology Services (ITS)

Enterprise Systems Advisory Group (ESAG) Task Force on Recording Gender and Sex

This task force was charged by the ESAG committee with researching and documenting the information currently available in our systems of record, including but not limited to sex, first name, and nickname. The goal of the project was stated as: “In addition to documenting our current practices, the task force will also be asked to recommend enhancements for the future.” 

The task force met during fall term 2015. A proposal was submitted to ITS and College Deans in October 2015. The materials on this web page are from that time period — updated versions may be available from some of the organizations listed.

Since fall 2015, Carleton has implemented a number of changes to name information visible to faculty and students. The college is working with Ellucian (Colleague) to improve the options available to record names, gender, and pronouns. This project is ongoing.
