The Princeton Histories Fund is designed to support the exploration of “aspects of Princeton’s history that have been forgotten, overlooked, subordinated, or suppressed.” The goal of this initiative is to encourage a deeper and more nuanced engagement with our institutional history and to explore the legacies of that history at Princeton and beyond. We hope that new knowledge and heightened awareness will inform our curriculum, programming, research interests, and campus climate.
