What Do We Recommend?

Members of our committee are well aware that the best resource Princeton has is the people who live, work, and study here; we have no intention of imposing a new structure invented by "the administration." The "system" is not broken; but life here could be better, for students both male and female, if some relatively simple steps were taken.

Our goals are to move Princeton closer to achieving parity of opportunities available to both women and men on campus in areas where such parity may not now exist, and to enhance their capacities to pursue those opportunities.

We have identified several ways in which women (and men) can be encouraged to be leaders in a variety of contexts, and excel academically on this campus. These points can be taken as general recommendations and as goals that specific recommendations are designed to help us pursue.
