Gender Transition Process for Faculty and Staff

​​​In keeping with DePaul's commitment to equity and inclusion and our mission to respect the human dignity of every member of our community, DePaul has implemented a gender transition option accessible through the Gender Transition Process Form.

The intent is to provide an option for an individual employee who wishes to change their gender, gender pronouns, name, and/or photo in one place and have it communicated effectively to areas of the University necessary to effectuate that change.

This form will notify a designee within your home department, Academic Affairs, ID Services, Advancement, Information Services, Alumni Relations, and Enrollment Management of your updated gender, gender pronouns, name, and/or photo, so that systems and University websites can be updated. Please note: This form should not be used by faculty or staff who are making legal name changes unrelated to gender transition (i.e., marriage, divorce, etc.).

Changes to your preferred name without legal documentation and/or gender can be completed through your Personal Details tile on

To submit a new photo for your DePaul ID card, please follow these instructions.

If you are legally changing your name, you will need to contact Human Resources at ​
