Excerpt: On February 10th, The Daily Princetonian published its second ever annual Diversity, Equity, Belonging, and Inclusion Report. The report follows the Prince’s first ever Diversity Report published last year.

Less than 5 percent of the Prince staff reported itself as conservative, similar to less than 3 percent in 2022. According to The Daily Princetonian’s Frosh Survey, conservatives account for 11.4 percent of Princeton’s student body compared to the 36 percent of Americans who identify as conservative. Despite having no stated political association, over 83 percent of the Prince’s staff identifies as left-of-center.
