inclusive language

August 28, 2013

Holy Cross is committed to achieving a proficiency in the use of
sex-inclusive language. Students are asked to speak and write
inclusively when preparing assignments, in classroom presentations,
in their contribution to campus publications, and as representatives
of the College at public events. For example, where
appropriate, generic use of the pronoun “he” should be replaced
with either “he or she” or an alternate sex-blind construction;
neutral terms such as chair should replace chairman; the use
of titles should be standardized. Any questions regarding the
inclusive language usage can be addressed to the Affirmative
Action Officer.
