Diversity Working Group
The Diversity Working Group, appointed by President Shirley M. Tilghman in 2004, was charged with identifying strategies and potential barriers that affect the recruitment, hiring, retention and promotion of a diverse workforce at Princeton. The group focused its efforts on people of color among non-faculty employees at all levels and worked in conjunction with the provost's office both to analyze areas that prevent the University from meeting its objectives and to develop strategies to address those concerns.
Janet Dickerson, vice president for campus life, and Mark Burstein, executive vice president, co-chaired the group and Terri Harris Reed, vice provost for institutional equity and diversity, served as its executive secretary. The Diversity Working Group released their interim report in fall 2005.
