Mission

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion-Campus Life is committed to supporting and challenging all undergraduate and graduate students by facilitating co-curricular experiences and learning about identity, inclusion, equity, and social justice education. We serve the campus community through education, advising and training, and university-wide programming.

Vision

We envision a Princeton University culture that affirms and supports the identities, backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives of all students in a way that informs University efforts to create equity across student identities and experiences.

To this end, we focus our efforts in these strategic areas:

  1. Engaging undergraduate and graduate students of all backgrounds and identities in reflective learning experiences related to identity, inclusion, equity, and social justice education.
  2. Supporting marginalized student populations and advocating for institutional change in the areas of diversity, inclusion, and equity.
  3. Strengthening belonging and cultivating community-building that centers marginalized identities and narratives.
  4. Creating collaborative, student-centered partnerships with allies and constituents within the University and with broader communities to advance our mission.
  5. Responding to the needs of our students, colleagues, and constituents around issues of diversity and inclusion.

Centers

The Carl A. Fields Center, LGBT Center, and Women*s Center are all housed within the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and are distinct units with specific missions, histories, and legacies, and together, we work intersectionally because we understand that our students have layered identities and experiences. Each Center provides student support and mentoring, educational opportunities for students and employees, community advising, and university-wide programming. Click on any of the Centers’ logos below to learn about the specific work they do.
