Until Nassau Hall decides to prevent the most obvious forms of racism from festering on campus, its commitment to uprooting systemic racism will ring hollow.
This Board vigorously opposes Princeton’s refusal to change expected family contributions, all the while reducing tuition.
We demand the administration take material steps to ensure the renaming is the first step of many to address its racist institutional history.
The University has an obligation to its community to be clear about the options it is considering for the fall semester and beyond. Bringing students into the fold only when a decision is made shirks that obligation.
Ressa and her colleagues at Rappler, who have unearthed many such abuses, are guilty only of holding Duterte to account.
Campus security should not mirror, let alone multiply, policing practices and forces.
Though this Board commends efforts to minimize the transmission of COVID-19 on campus over the summer, we are deeply concerned by the large and seemingly arbitrary cost that the University is imposing on these students.
This Board not only recommends a move away from requiring standardized testing for the 2020–21 admissions cycle, but urges a permanent shift beyond the coronavirus pandemic.
We applaud Princeton’s previous decisions to revise policy when confronted with the realities of the pandemic and encourage similar action before the disparate effects of the current grading policy become even more self-evident.
This Board opposes qualified immunity on principle and finds no reason for the University to support the expansion of this practice.
The Editorial Board exists to affirm The Daily Princetonian as part of the University community and critically examine the world around us.
Though Princeton may seem a world away from the uncertainty and terror that Dreamers endure every day, we must not forget that we have peers who are living through this hell. We stand with them as friends, students, and Americans.
The new requirement will further allow members of CPUC — foremost among them, President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 — to manicure, polish, and calibrate platitudes in advance. Council meetings will degenerate into PR. Worse still, there is no way to ensure that the Council will even address, much less disclose, the questions it receives and chooses not to answer.
By positioning administrators, who are not tasked to listen to protesters’ 2019 demands, but rather to monitor and restrict their lawful behavior, in close physical proximity to demonstrators, the University stifles the type of unfettered, unsettling free speech it claims to champion.
Fifty years ago, the Association of Black Collegians occupied New South to protest the University’s investments in apartheid South Africa. Those students examined South African history and contemporary affairs beyond the constraints of traditional Western scholarship. They pursued an expansive, provocative understanding of the human experience, one that transcended geographic and racial boundaries. We should heed their example.
