The lack of discourse around anti-Native racism at the University is paralleled by minimal representation and resources for people of Indigenous heritage at the University.

Instead, broader criteria could draw more professors from all different backgrounds, who can bring in new ideas, instruct and inspire the next generation of scholars, and help the University live up to its ideals.

The consequences of being a queer Princeton student during a pandemic

As an institution that is committed to admitting students from diverse backgrounds, Princeton has to be equally as committed to ensuring their success. Many parents of queer students are often painfully aware of the leverage they possess, in that their student’s ability to complete their education is based on their willingness to provide their financial information.
