Photos of the top campus stories from President Tilghman's first 10 years in office

Posted on September 14, 2011


In the decade since Shirley Tilghman made her move from the faculty to Nassau Hall, the president has been at the heart of many of Princeton’s top news headlines. This year-by-year slide show captures the highlights – fundraising milestones, new programs and initiatives, a long and contentious dispute over a donor’s bequest, and more.

2001: After 15 years on the biology faculty, Shirley Tilghman is formally installed as Princeton’s 19th president Sept. 28, 2001. In her speech, Tilghman addresses the recent Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, saying that “history will judge us in the weeks and months ahead by our capacity to sustain civil discourse in the face of deep disagreement.” (Photo: Denise Applewhite/Office of Communications)
