In Need of Support?

Discrimination or sexually motivated instances on the campus of Indiana State University need to be reported to very specific departments on campus. This is just to ensure that ISU follows requirements set up by the Department of Education to improve campus safety. If you feel comfortable sharing to a specific ISU employee there is no reason why you cannot approach them and have that conversation. However, it is important that you are aware that sometimes employees need to report specific situations or get guidance from those more knowledgeable to better help you.

The Equal Opportunity and Title IX Office supports the university by providing expert advice, education, and services which ensure the university's compliance with all applicable federal, state, and university equal opportunity, affirmative action, nondiscrimination, and civil rights laws, regulations, and policies. If possible, please start with the Title IX Officer, Dr. Leah Reynolds at

Name Change Process

A student is able to change their "legal" name through legal documentation (court order) by presenting documentation to the Office of Registration and Records. Your "legal" name is the one recognized by the federal government (i.e. social security card, passport, etc.) and the State of Indiana. Your "legal" name is the one reflected in your official academic records. Please note that you will be required to supply supporting documentation to change your "legal" name. Accepted forms of documentation include a: certified copy of marriage license, divorce decree or dissolution decree, certified copy of Certificate of Name Change, current passport, current driver's license, military ID or social security card. Please print and return a completed application-pdf.png Request for Change of Name / Gender form to the Office of Registration and Records, Parsons Hall, Room 009, Indiana State University, Terre Haute, IN 47809.

Preferred Name

Students may use a “preferred” first name and/or salutation that differs from their “legal” name within certain campus systems. This is permissible whether or not their name has been changed legally. This is permissible if the ‘preferred” first name is not being used for the purpose of misrepresentation. The “legal” name will continue to be used in all University-related systems and documents that require a verified legal name. Please contact Registration and Records if you have questions regarding either process.
