Wilson Legacy Report

The Wilson Legacy Review Committee undertook the task of examining Woodrow Wilson's legacy and the ways in which Princeton recognizes him. 

The committee recommended and the board approved new initiatives in four areas:

  • Establish a new high-profile pipeline program to encourage more students from underrepresented groups to pursue doctoral degrees;
  • Encourage and support a broad range of education and transparency initiatives to create a more multi-faceted understanding and representation of Wilson on campus and to focus attention on aspects of Princeton’s history that have been forgotten, overlooked, subordinated, or suppressed; 
  • Diversify campus art and iconography to reflect the diversity and inclusivity of today’s Princeton; and 
  • Change Princeton’s informal motto from “Princeton in the nation’s service and in the service of all nations” to “Princeton in the nation’s service and the service of humanity.”
