Princeton releases inaugural Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Report

The report comes largely in response to a July 2020 open letter from hundreds of faculty to President Christopher Eisgruber ’83. The letter called for the University to, among 48 total demands, reform hiring practices, rename multiple campus buildings and monuments, implement widespread antiracism training, and acknowledge that the University exists on land of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation.

Desire paths, ‘Walden,’ and walking without a path

Inspired by walks around campus, Senior Writer Gabriel Robare meditates on the desire path — a trail created by repeated foot traffic — in a passage from Thoreau’s “Walden,” as well as in his personal life, as someone who finds joy in creating patterns and routines out of the chaos of life.
