President Eisgruber ’83’s time in Nassau Hall will continue for at least five more years, following an action by the Board of Trustees in early April. 

“As the University and world emerge from a period of unprecedented challenges, the board felt it was so important to give us all the reassurance and strength of Chris Eisgruber’s continued leadership for a minimum five more years,” Louise “Weezie” Sams ’79, chair of the trustees, said in an announcement. Eisgruber has confirmed that he will continue as president for that period.

The news coincides with an ongoing engagement and fundraising campaign, Venture Forward, which launched in October 2021. The University has not released a fundraising target for the campaign; the last major capital campaign, Aspire, raised $1.88 billion.

Eisgruber was selected as Princeton’s 20th president in April 2013 following nine years as provost, and took office in July 2013.
