Architecture professor fired last year blames ‘cancel culture’ as Princeton cites ‘neglect of duty’

On July 19, 2021, an eight-year saga came to a climax when Alejandro Zaera-Polo was terminated from the Princeton faculty. In the time since, the former dean of the School of Architecture has framed the story of his dismissal as a tale of “identity politics,” “academic authority,” and “codes of silence.” University administrators see it differently: The professor repeatedly failed to comply with policies, they say, and “damaged the educational interests” of students.
