Inclusive Princeton

June 2020

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”
                                                     Frederick Douglass

The Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity mourns the lost and damaged lives of Black people subjected to our country’s enduring racism. 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. 

Combating Racism

Princeton University has a responsibility to stand up against racism and to bring its scholarly and teaching resources to bear to create a more just and equal society.  We are now asking how we can focus and operationalize our efforts —through our teaching and research, through our operations, and through our interactions and partnerships with those around us to effectively fight racism.
