The n-word is not your educational tool

“There is no good reason for a white professor to use the n-word in the classroom. Time and time again, student experiences have shown that there is no educational or truth-seeking value gained from actively hearing hate speech.”

Mental health reforms must be proactive and transparent

“The University must focus its efforts on consistently providing students with mental health resources rather than reactive initiatives. It is not enough to merely flood the student body with resources in the wake of campus tragedies.”

We can preserve in-person learning without sacrificing immunocompromised students’ education

“An investment in hybrid learning options does not mean a return to the spring of 2020. The University can and should pioneer learning models that allow for more equitable access to the classroom.”

The Editorial Board misses the point: We don’t need admissions statistics to know Princeton doesn’t serve marginalized communities

“The Editorial Board’s response to the announcement focused on the potential discouraging effect that the actions of the Office of Admission can have on applicants. But if our primary concerns are discouraging prospective students, the Board is missing the point. We don’t need admissions statistics to know Princeton doesn’t serve marginalized communities.”

We owe Asian Americans more than solidarity

“The University community must ensure that the history and experiences of Asian Americans and other marginalized groups are not overlooked in academic settings. It must also take more specific action to accommodate rather than simply acknowledge, the broader swath of suffering students. This Board calls on the University community to back up their statements of solidarity with action.”

‘Speak Freely,’ unless you’re running for Young Alumni Trustee

“As previous Boards have pointed out, students running for YAT have, through their four years on campus, likely developed strong and informed views on how to improve the Princeton experience. So we continue to ask: why not allow those views to be expressed?”
