Vanderbilt University is now issuing staff nameplates that include staffers’ preferred gender pronouns alongside more conventional information like their name and job title.

A photo of the new nameplates first surfaced on Twitter earlier this week, showing four different nameplates that all carry preferred pronouns.

Now, an assistant diversity coordinator can declare a preference for ze, zir, and zirs as zir pronouns.

The new nameplates come just days after Vanderbilt began decorating the campus with posters teaching students how to use unconventional gender-neutral pronouns like “ze” and “zirs.” They also come a month after Vanderbilt returned a $1.2 million donation so that it could rename Confederate Memorial Hall.

Vanderbilt’s annual cost of attendance is currently $63,532.
