Policy Statement

Indiana University pledges itself to continue its commitment to the achievement of equal opportunity within the University and throughout American society as a whole. In this regard, Indiana University will recruit, hire, promote, educate, and provide services to persons based upon their individual qualifications. Indiana University prohibits discrimination based on arbitrary considerations of such characteristics as age, color, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, genetic information, or veteran status.

As required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Indiana University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities, including employment and admission. Questions specific to Title IX may be referred to the Office for Civil Rights or the University Title IX Coordinator.

Indiana University shall take affirmative action, positive and extraordinary, to overcome the discriminatory effects of traditional policies and procedures with regard to the disabled, minorities, women, and veterans.

At IU, you have the option to provide your legal name, a preferred name, and your diploma name. Your diploma name, as of summer 2018, can only be updated by the Registrar's Office. Each semester, they contact graduates notifying them of the diploma name that they have for that student on file. At that time, graduating students can update their diploma name. More information on updating your diploma name can be found at the Registrar's Office.

If you are having issues having your chosen name displayed on your diploma, please contact us at lgbtcntr@iupui.edu.
