To combat inequity faced by international students, Princeton must expand its departmental classifications

“Many international students whose primary academic interests lie in a non-STEM field end up in Catch-22. They can prioritize majoring in a field that addresses their academic passion and potentially lose residency in the country in which they want to use their degree, or they can prioritize extending their stay in the US post graduation, only to be faced with job prospects that don’t interest them.”
