Princeton University Creates New Diversity Council

Princeton University has announced the formation of a 28-member diversity council to advise the administration on issues related to campus diversity. The new council is co-chaired by Lianne Sullivan-Crowley, vice president for human resources, and Terri Harris Reed, vice provost for institutional equity and diversity.

When announcing the formation of the council, Provost Christopher Eisgruber stated that, “Princeton’s mission requires that we create a community that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable.”

The new council will focus on three goals:

• Recommending and promoting policies, practices, and programs that foster effective participation in a diverse and inclusive community;
• Examining structures and processes that impede or facilitate progress toward diversity goals; and
• Identifying strategies and approaches to raise awareness and sustain dialogue.
