Excerpt: Princeton has released its third annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion report, which shares the important work of students, faculty, staff and alumni to build community and support success and belonging at the University. The report highlights Princeton’s long-term and continuing efforts to be more diverse, inclusive, accessible and accountable.

The report provides a snapshot of the many initiatives, programs and events that occurred during the 2022-23 year — all of which were open to all members of the University.

It summarizes a range of activities under the themes of: climate, inclusion and equity, such as workshops on Jewish identity, inclusion and antisemitism available to students and staff of all faiths and ethnicities; academic experience, such as workshops on free speech and academic freedom led by the national organization PEN America for senior administrators, staff, faculty and others; and outreach and access, such as the new Transfer Scholars Initiative supporting the success of talented community college students from across New Jersey.

Excerpt: Every year, the Committee to Nominate Alumni Trustees calls for nominations for elections to be held in April. As alumni who care about Princeton and its place in the world, we responded. However, in the unofficial year of democracy, our experience has left us with many questions about who really runs the University.  . . . Our concerns relate . . . to the process and profound lack of transparency of the Board of Trustees and the Committee to Nominate Alumni Trustees.

The Princetonians for Free Speech (PFS) second annual survey of Princeton students is now available. This survey provides information on student attitudes on key free speech issues. Because the survey is being done annually, comparisons can be made to see if Princeton is making progress. Unfortunately, with three important exceptions, on most issues the survey shows little or no progress from the troublesome results in the first survey.
