In 2020, Princeton promised anti-racist action. Five years prior, the Black Justice League had offered a blueprint.

In this interactive feature, The Daily Princetonian recounts how the Black Justice League’s 2015 Nassau Hall sit-in forced a reckoning with racism on campus. We trace the group’s activism to the present day, from the removal of Woodrow Wilson’s name to ongoing calls for an anti-racist curriculum.

Prof. Robert George’s views on gender come under fire after controversial Twitter poll

Prominent conservative professor Robert P. George received backlash on social media last week after posting a poll that questioned pronoun usage, which multiple students who spoke to The Daily Princetonian found transphobic and invalidating of nonbinary and gender-nonconforming experiences. With this latest dispute, the University community continues to grapple with reconciling free speech and inclusivity, particularly when those missions seem at odds.

NJ voted to legalize marijuana. What comes next?

“When the state passes a law implementing the legalization of the recreational use of marijuana, the University will review the law carefully,” a spokesperson told the ‘Prince.’ “It is our understanding that state law will prohibit the consumption of marijuana on property owned, leased or controlled by the University (indoors and outdoors).”
