I was lucky to have President Eisgruber ’83 as both a professor and my thesis adviser just before he left full-time teaching to become provost. Although I had many wonderful teachers at Princeton, President Eisgruber stood heads above the rest for his unmatched ability to prompt lively classroom discussion, convey brilliant thoughts simply, and engage in thoughtful discourse with his students. PAW’s interview of President Eisgruber confirms to me that he is as humble, introspective, and compassionate as ever. I can think of no better person to lead Princeton into the future.
