December 2015 Newsletter: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Throughout the country, on college campuses, in civic venues, and at holiday gatherings, Americans - and New Jerseyans - have been engaging in conversations about race, ethnicity and discrimination. Princeton students have been no exception, with some of their conversations focusing on Woodrow Wilson - his views on race and his legacy as the 13th President of Princeton University, the 34th Governor of New Jersey, and the 28th President of the United States. In response to student concerns, President Christopher L. Eisgruber issued a message to university students, faculty, staff and alumni, noting that "We must commit ourselves to make this University a place where students from all backgrounds feel respected and valued." It is in this context that we begin this issue of @princeton.edu with the research of Stacey Sinclair, associate professor of psychology and African American studies, into "unconscious bias," or how our implicit prejudices inform our interactions in the context of racial inequality.
