Regarding the University’s land acknowledgement (On the Campus, February issue), when I lived in Princeton for several years around 2010, I was consistently struck by the University’s high-handed approach to the local community, to the point that it provoked a property tax lawsuit from low-income homeowners. The University’s ostentatious self-flagellation over its presumed treatment of the community 265 years ago would be more convincing if its treatment of the community were better today. How about acknowledging that it owns land far out of proportion to the taxes it pays — and that it can afford to remedy this circumstance any time it wants to?
