Princeton’s aspirations for a more diverse, equitable and inclusive campus community cannot succeed without the active participation of academic departments, programs, centers and institutes. Academic excellence and diversity are inextricably linked. Only by fully including people with a broad range of experiences and perspectives are we able to fulfill our mission for exceptional teaching, innovative research and service that benefits humanity. Academic units face different opportunities and challenges based upon disciplinary-specific norms and culture. While each department must respond to these opportunities and challenges in an individualized way, all of Princeton University’s academic departments, centers, institutes, and programs are committing to advancing access, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within their communities and disciplines
The Office of the Provost and many other campus partners support departmental efforts to recruit, retain, and support a diverse academic community while building an inclusive climate. We offer resources and best practices to enhance outreach and professional development; support learning; and improve engagement and community-building.
The diversity and inclusion team within the Office of the Provost is available to Princeton's academic departments for consultations.
Faculty, researchers and academic department staff and students are welcome to contact those leading diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in the following offices.
