Faculty Letter to President Eisgruber

more than 400 faculty members

Anti-Blackness is foundational to America. It plays a role in where we live and where we are welcome. It influences the level of healthcare we receive. . . . It informs the expectations and tactics of law-enforcement. And it plays a powerful role at institutions like Princeton, . . .  We urge you to acknowledge and give priority to the following demands: . . . [Also,] Constitute a committee composed entirely of faculty that would oversee the investigation and discipline of racist behaviors, incidents, research, and publication on the part of faculty, following a protocol for grievance and appeal to be spelled out in Rules and Procedures of the Faculty. Guidelines on what counts as racist behavior, incidents, research, and publication will be authored by a faculty committee for incorporation into the same set of rules and procedures.
