The Princeton University community will memorialize the events of Sept. 11 in a public gathering of remembrance at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, on Cannon Green on the front campus. The rain location is Dillon Gym. [The update as of 9 a.m. Sept. 11 is that this event will take place outside on Cannon Green, as rain is not expected until later in the day.]
Speakers at the remembrance will include Princeton President Shirley M. Tilghman; Kwame Anthony Appiah, the Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Philosophy and the University Center for Human Values; former U.S. Senator and 1965 alumnus Bill Bradley; 2007 alumna Chloe Wohlforth; and Princeton senior Charles Metzger.
The event is open to the public. It also will be available for viewing live and archived for later viewing on the University's WebMedia site.
For members of the broader Princeton community who desire to attend religious services, the University Chapel will host the Princeton Clergy Association's interfaith service at 7 p.m. The services will bring together the religious societies and congregations of many local churches to reflect on Sept. 11.
