Letter to the Editor: The ‘Prince’ should seek out Katz’s defenders, too

From my perspective, characterizing support for Professor Katz as coming from a “handful” of professors or “at least one alumnus” is likely a gross distortion.

Frist Campus Center, a significant hub of social activity on campus.

Letter to the Editor: We object to USG's handling of Referendum No. 3, but condemn attacks on our peers

“As leaders of an objection regarding USG’s management of Referendum No. 3, we strongly and unqualifiedly disavow those who have harassed the Chief Elections Manager, or alleged that he operated in bad faith. His was a simple and honest mistake.”

Letter to the Editor: In defense of jokes — free speech, harm, and the Satire section

“Self-censoring by avoiding contentious topics may help the Satire section avoid controversy, but doing so would be a disservice to the ‘Prince’ readership.”

Letter to the Editor: Princeton’s program for underrepresented students in medicine is a success

“Princeton’s data tells a much more encouraging story about supporting and mentoring students from URiM backgrounds on their way to careers in medicine. Ours is a culture of “lifting up” that extends far beyond the classroom.”

Letter to the Editor: Betting your future on ‘impact’ neglects inherent uncertainty

“I think it would be simpler — and more straightforward — to try to be happy, because you cannot know how your actions will affect other people. You cannot know if something you put into the world will be positive or negative. You can try, you can do your best, but you can never know for sure.”

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.”

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.
