Last month, University President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 issued a charge to University leadership to “specify a set of actions that could be taken” to “identify, understand, and combat systemic racism within and beyond the University.” He asked University leaders to investigate “[w]hat should Princeton University do to more effectively stand against racism and for equality and justice?” In closing his call to action, President Eisgruber tasked the entire Princeton community — students, faculty, staff, and alumni — to confront the “realities and legacy of racism.” Already, the University has made progress toward confronting its own legacy of racism by removing Woodrow Wilson’s name from the public policy school and the residential college.
The University will file an amicus brief in the lawsuit brought today by Harvard and MIT against the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 wrote in an email to the campus community on Wednesday.

The Ivy League has cancelled fall intercollegiate athletics for the 2020–2021 school year. No competition will take place before at least January 1, 2021.
On July 6, the same day the University announced its plans for the upcoming academic year, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released updated policies that severely limit the possibilities for international students to remain in and return to the United States during the upcoming academic year. During the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, exceptions had been made to allow students to remain in the United States while still taking a fully online course load, something that would not be permitted under normal circumstances. However, these concessions have now been struck down and replaced with the following guideline: if your school is only going to offer online teaching, you are not allowed to remain in the United States.
The University may employ a “lottery system” to determine when students who elect to take gap years may re-enroll, Dean of the College Jill Dolan told over 750 attendees of a Zoom Q&A last night.

In an opinion piece published in The Daily Princetonian yesterday, Juan José López Haddad attacked the Princeton Open Campus Coalition (POCC) and its recent efforts to defend academic freedom. As a member of this coalition, I welcome the opportunity to litigate our important work. Haddad, of course, is hardly alone in his rank displeasure with the existence and work of POCC. Since the release of our letter, much has been said of it, both in and out of the University community. What follows is, to be sure, a response to the charges he raises, but it is in equal part a larger defense of our movement for academic freedom.
Last week, ExxonMobil and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment renewed a five-year research partnership. The collaboration exists as part of the Center’s E-filliates Partnership, a corporate membership program dedicated to the acceleration of energy and environmental research.
In a recent opinion piece, Andlinger Center Director Lynn Loo defended the Center’s research partnership with ExxonMobil on the grounds that engagement with oil and gas companies is required for rapid decarbonization. This piece came within 24 hours of an announcement that Exxon had re-upped the multimillion dollar partnership for another 5 years.
In a recently circulated piece, a group of around twenty students warned the University against implementing anti-racist training and curricular reform. All of these claims are made under the purported grounds that it would limit free speech and academic freedom.
To the Editors,
Five years ago, the Black Justice League (BJL) and Black Student Union organized a 33-hour sit-in of Nassau Hall to protest the University’s ongoing celebration of Woodrow Wilson. Last month, drawing upon the BJL’s efforts, Change WWS Now circulated a letter and list of demands. Later that week, Wilson’s name was finally stripped from the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) and the residential college now known as First College.
Twenty-two students have re-established the Princeton Open Campus Coalition (POCC), a group first founded in opposition to the Black Justice League (BJL) in 2015. In its latest iteration, the POCC advocates against unconscious bias training for faculty and objects to curriculum changes that would require students to learn about race and identity.
The University’s decision on fall undergraduate instruction will not come this week.
Princeton University’s recent decision to drop the name of Woodrow Wilson, Class of 1879, from the designation of its public policy school garnered widespread attention and praise. Princeton widely advertised the name change as a sign of progress. While the change is certainly progressive, the decision should trigger a discussion on the name “Princeton” itself, which may have a far more sinister legacy than “Woodrow Wilson.”
