As a graduate student at Princeton from 2000 to 2006, it was only by making a particular effort — in my case, by serving as a founding member of Princeton Stand-Up Comedy — that we felt the sense of inclusion that one might expect. I am always delighted to hear about the University in the news and elsewhere, and look forward to more events that are focused not just on graduate students but are inclusive of all alumni, as well as a more complete integration of graduate alumni into the many Princeton alumni networks. Like others, I would love to see more graduate alumni named to Princeton’s board. All told, however, this is a great step in the right direction, and most appreciated!
