Council of the Princeton University Community

Background about the CPUC

In May 1969, a Special Committee on the Structure of the University, chaired by Professor Stanley Kelley Jr., proposed the establishment of a Council of the Princeton University Community as “a permanent conference of the representatives of all major groups of the University” where “they could each raise problems that concern them and … be exposed to each other’s views.” Meetings occur usually 6 times a year.  Council membership includes faculty, students, staff and alumni representatives, but meetings are open to all in the University community (contact the Council's secretary, Ann Halliday (, if you would like to receive meeting notices).
