PronounsHe / Him
To acknowledge that assumptions about someone’s gender identity could be incorrect, many organizations, including NC State, have begun to encourage community members to include a brief statement of their gender pronouns as they introduce themselves within a group.

Shout-outs From My Colleagues
Shout-outs are kind words from Libraries staff to other Libraries staff for going out of their way to be extra awesome at their job.
A professor reached out to the library a few weeks ago to ask if we could purchase an ebook version of the textbook she is using for her course. Alex let her know about our pandemic-status chapter scan service for textbooks and took the opportunity to promote our Open Pedagogy support. He looped me in to see if there is an ebook version of the textbook she is using (there isn't and the publisher has no plans to offer an ebook), but the real benefit here is the fact that Alex noticed a need and a desire to help students and made a case for open pedagogy in a compelling and emotionally intelligent way. The professor is now working with colleagues in the library to select an OER (Open Educational Resource). Way to go, Alex!
