Working group report on CPUC agenda
Posted April 22, 2011; 10:13 a.m.
The report of the Working Group on Campus Social and Residential Life is on the agenda for the meeting of the Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) at 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 2, in East Pyne, Room 10. All members of the campus community are invited to attend.
In fall 2010, Princeton President Shirley M. Tilghman established the group and asked it to consider several questions that were raised by a separate task force that in 2008-09 reviewed relationships between the University and the 10 independent eating clubs adjacent to the campus that more than two-thirds of all juniors and seniors join.
Tilghman asked the working group to consider these four questions:
- How can undergraduate social and residential life be enhanced and improved on campus?
- How can the University enrich the social and residential experience in the residential colleges?
- What is and should be the role of fraternities and sororities at Princeton?
- Is it desirable, and if so, feasible, to reintroduce a campus pub?
Working group co-chairs Cynthia Cherrey, vice president for campus life, and Robert Durkee, vice president and secretary, will present the group's report as well as an update on the implementation of recommendations of the Eating Club Task Force.
The agenda also includes a report from the CPUC's Resources Committee by professor Deborah Prentice, chair of the committee and of the Department of Psychology.
