Inclusive Princeton

March 2021

“Ours is not the struggle of one day, one week, or one year…. Ours is the struggle of a lifetime, or maybe even many lifetimes, and each one of us in every generation must do our part.”
                                                     John Lewis

The Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity mourns the lost and damaged lives of marginalized and oppressed people subjected to our country’s enduring racism. We stand in solidarity with all those who experience injustice based on race, gender or any aspect of identity, from people of Asian descent subjected to abuse and murder to Black victims of police violence. We acknowledge the many ways that over generations, Princeton University itself has embodied inequality.

Institutionally, we still have work to do.

Our commitment to the campus community is to bring renewed energy to structural change that makes Princeton more demographically diverse, more inclusive and accessible, more accountable, and more self-aware. We pledge to bring all our resources to this sustained challenge – including funding, expertise, policies and best practices, advocacy, training, data, and collaboration.

We will continue to do everything that we can to protect our campus community from manifestations of bias, discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct.

We will do our work in collaboration with you, our campus community. We would like to hear from you.  Connect with us - your input, feedback, and personal experiences are essential.

The Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity remains open and is functioning remotely at this time.  Anyone impacted by bias, discrimination and/or harassment is encouraged to contact our office  to make a report and/or obtain assistance.  Resources continue to be available and investigations will be conducted remotely.

As well, the Policy on Discrimination and/or Harassment continues to apply to behaviors that occur in person between members of the University community as well as to online, virtual, and electronic interactions. 

Fighting Racial Inequity

Princeton University is committed to using its scholarly, administrative and community resources to help create a more racially just and equal society.  Learn more about our plans and activities on our racial equity website.
