Diversity

Vision:

At the Graduate School we aim to create an equitable, inclusive, and culturally competent community that respects and values differences. In agreement with the 2013 Report of the Trustee Ad Hoc Committee on Diversity, we believe that in order to realize our full potential, we must include a broad range of experiences and perspectives that will expand our capacity for teaching and learning, increase opportunities for innovative research, and equip students for lives of service and leadership in an increasingly pluralistic society.

Mission:

To develop and expand innovative programs and initiatives that support and enrich the experience of prospective and current students from diverse backgrounds. We value the heterogeneity of experiences, perspectives, and thoughts of our community members. 

We respect and value the inherent worth of each individual from all races, ethnic backgrounds, ages, genders, religions, sexual orientations, disabilities, economic or veteran status, and other diverse perspectives and individual differences.

·  To advance diversity and inclusion through community building, education and open dialogue for the Princeton graduate community;

·  To diversify the graduate student body through refining intentional recruitment efforts and improve accessibility of graduate school to historically underrepresented groups.

Princeton University is committed to providing each graduate student with resources necessary to achieve the highest levels of distinction in their research. In the following webpages you will find information and resources that support the Graduate School in these efforts.
