Monday’s Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) meeting provided a rare glimpse into administrators’ opinions regarding current student activism like the Ban the Box campaign. Meeting organizers also discusses initiatives like the Pace Center’s new Service Focus program, and scientific innovation on campus.
In the annual protest against solitary confinement, students stood in an outlined box smaller than their dorm rooms, persisting day and night to demonstrate a reality that, for many, does not end when the sun comes up.
Activist and politician Mu Sochua lived in exile from Cambodia for almost two decades after her parents disappeared under the Khmer Rouge regime. Ever since, she has fought for justice in her home country. She spoke about her political journey in front of an attentive audience on Thursday in her talk, “Democracy in Peril,” as part of the Woodrow Wilson School’s Joseph S. Nye Jr. ’58 International Affairs lecture series.
