Programs and Services

The Griffon family is building a culture of inclusivity and respect.
We encourage individuals to learn others’ pronouns and their uses.
We also encourage individuals to respect the gender identities of others.

The mission of the Griffon Pride Alliance is to promote awareness of transgender and gender non-binary culture, and to provide a supportive group environment for transgender and gender non-binary students.

The Preferred Name Policy at Missouri Western State University allows students to change their first names in most university information systems without pursuing a legal name change. Please see the policy guide for more information.
