The n-word is not your educational tool

“There is no good reason for a white professor to use the n-word in the classroom. Time and time again, student experiences have shown that there is no educational or truth-seeking value gained from actively hearing hate speech.”

When it comes to students’ lack of service, we have only ourselves to blame

“There’s no scarcity of resources, service opportunities, or even time among students at Princeton. In thinking about students’ lack of service, we have only ourselves to blame.”

Eisgruber won't sacrifice academic rigor for mental health. Students aren't getting either.

“The problem with Eisgruber’s logic isn’t that Princeton students don’t sympathize with the fear of academic mediocrity. It’s that we feel it deeply.”

Why are Freshman Seminars not automatically PDF’d?

“Automatically PDF-ing freshman seminars would lower stress levels for first-years as they transition into the notoriously rigorous academic environment that Princeton boasts. PDF-only freshman seminars would not be an extra burden on top of that overwhelming stress, but rather, a way to understand and appreciate the beauty of learning.”

Theater excellence can’t come at the cost of student performers’ mental health

“The theater professionals at Triangle conveyed through their actions that they prefer to treat stressed college students participating in an extracurricular activity as full-time professional actors, pushing them to their physical and mental limits, and tossing them aside when they can no longer keep up.”

Letter to the Editor: The ‘Prince’ ignored context about my citation of Mixon-Webster’s poem

“While I regret not discussing how we would discuss that word, I maintain that engaging with that poem was a critical part of the class’s pedagogy.”

CJL

With the IHRA definition of antisemitism, the CJL alienates left-wing Jewish students

“In prioritizing the protection of Zionism over the protection of Jewish students on this campus, the CJL betrays the cause it claims to care so much about. The Princeton Jewish community, and Princeton students in general, deserve better than this political stunt masquerading as an attempt to fight antisemitism.”

Princeton’s divestment and dissociation announcement charts a path towards a fossil free campus

“While Princeton’s current divestment policy makes huge leaps towards addressing the influence of the fossil fuel industry at our University, there is more work to do.”

Newer buildings must not stray from Princeton’s gothic roots

“The [new colleges’] monochrome brick walls look like they were copy-pasted, and the buildings themselves are void of the artistic beauty that Princeton is known for. Why settle for less?”

Princeton must do more in its Indigenous advocacy efforts

“As it stands, the University is doing nowhere near enough to educate its community about the Indigenous land it stands on or the Lenni-Lenape people native to it. Equally so, Princeton is not providing sufficient Indigenous educational resources to its full capacity.”

My professor used the n-word in class. Princeton's inaction is indefensible.

“This institution needs to restore its moral compass. You shouldn’t be able to harass students and keep your job. Except at Princeton where — for now — you can.”

No Communication Orders help students thrive. They shouldn't be made more onerous.

“No one ever gets an NCO just for the sake of getting an NCO — they get an NCO because they want to feel safe and to be able to go about their day-to-day life in a way that is not constantly marked by anxiety and fear. ”
