(CAMPUS REFORM) — The University of Minnesota is considering a new policy that would mandate the use of “preferred pronouns” under threat of expulsion or firing.

According to the policy—currently titled “Equity and Access: Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Names and Pronouns”—members of the academic institution “are expected to use the names, gender identities, and pronouns specified to them by University members.”

The policy, which reportedly began circulating earlier this year, would also allow students to use school facilities based on their preferred gender identity and not their sex assigned at birth.
