President’s Blog: #DoublePell

by Christopher L. Eisgruber

One of my highest priorities is to increase the number of low-income and middle-income students getting college degrees, both at Princeton and nationally.

President’s Blog: Celebrating Dean Cecilia Rouse’s Nomination to Chair Biden’s Council of Economic Advisers

Princeton today celebrates President-elect Joe Biden’s announcement that he will nominate Cecilia Rouse, Dean of the School of Public and International Affairs, to Chair the Council of Economic Advisers.  I cannot imagine a better choice for the role.  Ceci Rouse is a distinguished economist and an outstanding dean for the School.  For more than eight years, she has led the School of Public and International Affairs with integrity and a steadfast commitment to scholarly excellence, diversity, and the free exchange of ideas.

President’s Blog: Remaining Vigilant During the Pandemic

A friend practices medicine in the Princeton area.  He talked with me recently about what it’s like to be a doctor in the COVID era.  He described the precautions he takes when seeing patients, including wearing a face shield over multiple masks throughout his work day.  He spoke about colleagues who suffered from the disease after contracting it from patients, and about the number of medical professionals who had died from COVID nationwide.  He related the anxiety that local nurses and doctors feel as case counts rise nationally, in New Jersey, and in Mercer County.

President's Blog: Make Your Voice Heard

Over the last few months, I have often wished that I had an informal, easy way to communicate with the Princeton community.  I hope that this blog will meet that need.  Posts will typically be brief, topical, and unbound by any publication schedule:  I’ll rely on the University’s social media channels to let you know when I’ve posted something new.
