University hosted visits by two political leaders
Princeton NJ — On Jan 17, Jon Corzine spoke in the University Chapel at a morning prayer service hours before he was inaugurated as New Jersey’s 54th governor. “It is wonderful to be here in this magnificent chapel and this great university, which represents so much of what is good in New Jersey and in the nation,” Corzine said following a welcoming address by President Tilghman. Like his predecessors, Corzine will serve as an ex officio trustee of Princeton. The University also hosted the inaugural ball that evening in Jadwin Gymnasium.

On Jan. 18, U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke in Richardson Auditorium as part of events commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. The event also recognized the creation of the S. Daniel Abraham Visiting Professorship in Middle East Policy Studies and its first holder, Daniel C. Kurtzer, former U.S. ambassador to Israel and Egypt. “I am a great fan of the Woodrow Wilson School and all that it does to challenge, train and inspire a new generation of leaders and public servants,” Clinton said. She saluted Abraham, a noted philanthropist, and Kurtzer for their years of work seeking to achieve peace in the Middle East.
