Letter to the Editor: Why is the ‘Prince’ so negative?

Alumnus Jorge Aguilar critiques the tone of The Daily Princetonian Opinion section as excessively critical of the University and suggests there are other topics that should capture the interest of Princeton students.

Letter to the Editor: A response to the Abigail Shrier event

“We should harbor no delusions about what Shrier and her ilk are actually doing. They are capitalizing on the present stigma against transgender people in order to profit financially and politically.”

Letter to the editor: lessons from the bonfire

“There are lots of things to be cynical about in the world right now. There are all kinds of work to be done here on campus, in Princeton, and everywhere else where humanity comes with no promise of perfection. We could divide up as athletes and non-athletes, as occurs on many college campuses. But we have the opportunity here to do it differently — to respect and learn from every member of this community, their stories, and their experiences.”

Science-based measures and community’s efforts will support return to in-person teaching and learning

“Princeton was proactive and worked hard to develop an infrastructure that is not common, even among our peers. It is this novel yet tested combination of measures that allows us to confidently welcome back our whole community this fall.”

Title IX attorneys: Princeton must consider due process in sexual misconduct policies

“Calls for ‘transformative justice’ must be compatible with actual notions of justice: due process, impartial arbiters, equitable support and resources, individualized determinations based on specific circumstances, and the absence of prejudice for or against any individual based solely on their gender, race, their position in the community, or whether they are a complainant or respondent.”

With community’s help, work to foster respectful campus environment continues

“Strengthening our campus culture depends on members of our community working together.  We are grateful to the students, faculty, staff, and others who have been partners in these efforts.  With their help, we have enhanced policies, processes, penalties, communications, training, and resources designed to increase our community’s confidence that the University will appropriately address any misconduct we learn about.”

Princeton alumni condemn Sen. Ted Cruz ’92

Senator Ted Cruz ’92 has shown the utmost disservice to our Nation and has brought shame to our University and all we hold dear. As alumni, we are saddened and ashamed that he willfully aided and abetted an insurrection against our country, promoted lies and conspiracy theories to overturn an election, and violated his oath of office to protect a person rather than our Constitution. In so doing, he has brought shame to himself and the University community.

A denouncement of ‘A Declaration of Independence by a Princeton Professor’

We, the undersigned students and alumni of the Princeton Department of Classics and the Department of Linguistics, unequivocally denounce “A Declaration of Independence by a Princeton Professor,” written by Professor of Classics Joshua T. Katz. We condemn its demonization of student organizers, its belittling of faculty members in their support of anti-racism, and its flippant dismissal of efforts to combat systemic racism at Princeton while minimizing the very presence of that racism itself.
