Carl A. Fields Center
The Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding acknowledges, celebrates and promotes the diverse experiences that each member of Princeton University brings to the community. In collaboration with academic departments, the Women's Center, the Davis International Center, the LGBT Center and affiliated student organizations, the Fields Center acts as a catalyst for exploring critical issues on campus by initiating programs focused on race, class, gender, social justice, civic engagement, sexual orientation and the historical and current realities that impact the understanding of these topics.
The director of the Fields Center is a member of the staff of the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students who works closely with deans and other center directors in developing a co-curricular program that enriches Princeton's academic life. The director serves as an adviser and educator for students as well as a resource for faculty and staff on issues of diversity. Additionally, the Center's director organizes workshops, training and retreats for student organizations and campus affiliates that focus on topics related to race and ethnicity, class, civic engagement and leadership development. The work of the Center is also supported by an administrative assistant, a graduate program coordinator and undergraduate program assistants.
