Princeton University and Race Relations
Princeton University has a strong commitment to advancing the cause of race relations. The University's institutional movement toward greater diversity and inclusion is called Many Voices, One Future. The Princeton University community is continually working to make the University a place where everyone's perspectives are welcomed and valued, resulting in a positive and more successful future for the institution and the members of our community. We believe having a diverse community is the only way to maintain our position as a world-class university.
Most recently, the Princeton University Board of Trustees approved establishing a new, high-profile pipeline program to encourage more students from under-represented groups to pursue doctoral degrees; creating a more multi-faceted understanding and representation of Wilson on campus through a broad range of education and transparency programs; and expanding campus art and iconography to reflect the diversity and inclusivity of today's Princeton. The Trustee committee also approved Princeton's informal motto to "Princeton in the Nation's Service and the Service of Humanity." Princeton has numerous initiatives around diversity and inclusion.
All members of the campus community are charged with the effort to create an inclusive and diverse Princeton community — faculty, staff and students of all genders, ethnicities, nationalities, socioeconomic status, sexual orientations, religions, disabilities, ages, beliefs and cultural backgrounds. The University wants to ensure fair, equal access to opportunities such as admission, jobs and promotions and has been working on these goals for many years, and has created many programs to support our diversity and inclusion goals.
