The committee that will search for a replacement for President Tilghman includes 11 alumni. Of the nine who are not members of Princeton’s faculty or staff, five work in finance and two work as health-care executives (Campus Notebook, Nov. 14). None of the University’s many accomplished alumni in literature, music, or media — to name a few fields — can be found on the list. If the composition of the committee reflects the University’s values, it suggests a lopsided and impoverished view of who and what matters to the Princeton community.
