Hello Community,


We are working on successfully adhering to U.S. Departments of Education and Justice Release Joint Guidance to Help Schools Ensure the Civil Rights of Transgender Students.  I am curious what other schools, using Canvas, have implemented in regards to what information is being populated into the Display Name?  We were planning on using the preferred first name for the display name for the student's privacy. But, now are getting some push back from our faculty on civility issues.


Thank you for any input!
