University Counsel, Office of General Counsel
Sankar Suryanarayan grew up near the campus of the University of Rhode Island, where his parents were faculty members. After spending several years in private practice with a law firm, he found his way back to a university campus by taking a position with the American University in Washington, D.C. and then joining Princeton’s Office of the General Counsel in 2001.
Sankar provides support in a variety of areas, including employment, student affairs and campus security, and manages litigation involving the University. He says, “I can’t think of another attorney position which has a more varied and interesting portfolio than an in-house university attorney.”
