Princeton recognizes 50 years of community and inclusion

Dec. 16, 2021

As Princeton opened its doors to women and greater numbers of underrepresented students in the late 1960s and early 1970s, there was a clamoring for spaces where those students could gather for support and strength. Both the Third World Center (today’s Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding) and the Women*s Center (now the Gender + Sexuality Resource Center) were founded amidst this massive social and cultural shift on campus, providing much-needed community and connection.
