“Although overturning Roe, in my opinion, is a move in the right direction, it does not and should not be the end of the pro-life movement’s efforts. We need to support women who become pregnant, so that they are not forced to make a decision that they will regret or that could harm themselves or others.”

USG has abandoned their democratic principles

“Princeton students are asked to take USG seriously as a truly representative body, but they have now thrown out this legitimacy in favor of appeasing a small, angry group of students. Going forward, it will be on them to earn our trust back and on us to hold them accountable.”

160 Princeton faculty and staff members: The University must fully divest from fossil fuels

“As the world rapidly disengages from carbon-emitting energy sources by clear necessity, we believe it incompatible with the University’s moral principles to seek profit from continued investment in fossil fuels.”

Hobson College is not a milestone for inclusion if its namesake tears down vulnerable workers at Starbucks

“Contrary to official claims, naming our new residential college after Hobson does not address the University’s racist legacy — rather, it obscures the manner in which Hobson and the Starbucks Corporation are perpetuating patterns of racialized exploitation in this country.”

The Caterpillar referendum overlooks important realities

“Boycotting Caterpillar would harm the Palestinian Tractor & Equipment Company — a designated Caterpillar distributor — which describes itself as “a leading participant in Palestine’s economic and industrial development.” This should strike us as confusing: the referendum simultaneously condemns the demolition of Palestinian homes and tacitly proposes a boycott of a flagship Palestinian construction company. Its narrow aim leads it to hurt the very people it aims to help.”

Caterpillar referendum supporters avoid a debate they know they can’t win

“If this referendum were truly about supporting Palestinians and ensuring justice and peace, it would focus on tangible solutions to help the Palestinian people rather than virtue signaling through BDS-affiliated proposals.”

As the Alliance of Jewish Progressives, we support dissociation from Caterpillar

“Our support for this referendum is motivated by our solidarity with Palestinians and our desire to encourage the University to discontinue its relationships with Caterpillar which makes us complicit in racist, settler-colonial violence.”

Why Princeton is no longer promoting its admission rate

“There has been much discussion recently about the University’s decision to step back from promoting statistics about admitted students, including a Reactions column this week. As Dean of Admission, I want to provide additional information and context.”

Caterpillar Referendum peddles the hate and bigotry of the global BDS movement

“Instead of supporting a resolution that is rooted within a bigoted global movement, we ought to cultivate a Princeton campus where all students can safely cherish their identities and express their sentiments; where we collectively engage in a discourse free of hostility and intimidation; and where we sustain a positive environment for ourselves and future generations of Princeton students.”

Princeton in the service of fossil fuels

“At the Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) meeting on March 21, we were finally told how much of Princeton’s endowment is invested in fossil fuel companies. 1.7 billion dollars. Billion. 4.5 percent of the entire endowment.”
