I Have A Name@York College
Here is what you can do to help your professor and classmates address you by your first name:
- Download and fill out our "I have a name" template tent on our website and bring the tent to class.
- When participating, start with saying your first name as in "Christopher here," or "I'm Jeanine. "
- Do not point to a classmate but refer to them by name. If you forgot their name, say something like "Can you remind me of your name again, please?"
