We are excited that students now have the opportunity to vote during next week’s USG elections cycle to eliminate standard penalty and create an Honor System with penalties that are more commensurate with the severity of violations.
In solidarity with the National Freedom Campus Day of Action, SPEAR joins students across the country to call on the University to fully divest its endowment and operating contracts from the Prison-Industrial Complex and actively reinvest in the communities harmed by a racist and classist criminal punishment system.
In hosting Israel Shabbat, we take no communal stance on the Israeli government's policies or actions in regards to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We appreciate that members of our community have a wide range of opinions regarding those policies, and encourage everyone to attend this event and respectfully engage with their peers about Israel.
We want you to know that we hear you and want to support you to the best of our ability. We believe that every person deserves to be safe, respected, and happy on this campus, and we are here to listen to you always. If we can provide any other information that would be helpful, answer any questions, or address any concerns you may have that are currently unaddressed, including any you may have about your experience(s) with SHARE, we welcome further conversation.
Our university asks its graduates to dedicate themselves to “the service of humanity.” Ressa has actualized that lofty goal with her tireless advocacy of the fundamental human right of free speech. We are honored to join our names to her cause.
This week, we have been disappointed by the leadership of Virginia. The failures of Governor Northam, Lieutenant Governor Fairfax, and Attorney General Herring serve as a reminder that we need more women, people of color, and especially women of color in office.
On a final note, we want to reiterate how thankful we are for the continual student engagement on this issue. Because of the clear and resounding message the student body sent to the campus leadership, students have been able to drive a profound and positive transformation in the way that our Honor System operates.
In his Jan. 6 opinion piece in The Daily Princetonian, Jon Ort ’21 underscores the importance of academic freedom that is the lifeblood of the University, but incorrectly suggests that Google’s recently announced plans to open an artificial intelligence research lab in Princeton undercuts that freedom.
If they wish to remove the stereotypical image of little more than controversial Hellenistic funhouses, Greek organizations will have to do better in defining their missions and objectives to the public eye and the schools around which they operate.
Our repertoire, traditions, and group as a whole are constantly evolving, and thus we value this opportunity to ensure a more comfortable performance environment moving forward. We hope to continue fostering an open dialogue with our audiences both on and off Princeton’s campus.
The Princeton Reconstruction Project is comprised of concerned students calling for an active Reconstruction of Princeton University — an intentional pivot from its roots as a White supremacist institution to one that reflects the current values it espouses.
What we are living and witnessing in our present politics is highly anomalous, but more importantly, it cannot be dismissed or ignored. We must not allow ourselves to normalize the noxious. The unprecedented denial of science by many members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate is unacceptable.
PSAFE’s mission is “community caretaking.” We are here for the community through services like transports to University Health Services, lockouts, car battery jumps, and many other activities. Our police officers, security officers and dispatchers are all interested in being helpful and serving as a resource for the community.
This piece is a response to an editorial in The Daily Princetonian by Gabe Lipkowitz ’19 entitled “There is no art of science.” I consider Lipkowitz a close friend and recognize that he wishes to promote discussion by deliberately taking a bold stance. But his latest article, in my opinion, takes a stance much closer to ridiculous.
