Frequently Asked Questions

Name, Pronoun, SOGI Data

  • What is a chosen name?

    It is the name an individual would like to be called while at Wright State University. It does not require any legal documentation and may be reported via self-service through WINGS Express (students). An individual's preferred name is how the individual would like to be addressed by faculty, staff, and students.

    A chosen name may be reported by anyone, but trans identified students, international students, students who go by a nickname or middle name, or any student who prefers a name other than their legal name may commonly report a chosen name.
