Campus Resources for Difficult Times

Nov. 22, 2023

On Monday, November 20, 2023, the following email was sent to all Princeton University employees and students:

Dear colleagues and students,

In response to requests from students, faculty, and staff, several administrative offices have worked together to assemble a new website that compiles in one place the various resources and guidance available to the University community during periods of national or international crises.

Please visit and share with your campus network this new site, “Campus Resources for Difficult Times." 

At a university, events like the Israel-Hamas war can magnify differences in opinion, perspectives, and deeply held beliefs. Princeton community members are encouraged to keep in mind the respect for others guidance in Rights, Rules, Responsibilities, which is excerpted here:

“As an intellectual community, [Princeton University] attaches great value to freedom of expression and vigorous debate, but it also attaches great importance to mutual respect, and it deplores expressions of hatred directed against any individual or group. The University seeks to promote the full inclusion of all members and groups in every aspect of University life.”

With continued respect and care,

Michele Minter, Vice provost for Institutional Equity and Diversity 
W. Rochelle Calhoun, Vice President for Campus Life
Rod Priestley, Dean of the Graduate School 
Gene Jarrett, Dean of the Faculty
Jill Dolan, Dean of the College
Romy Riddick, Vice President for Human Resources
