Trustee Committee Recommends Increasing Size of Undergraduate Body

Feb. 1, 2000 6:01 p.m.

A special trustee committee has recommended that Princeton University increase the size of its undergraduate student body by approximately 10 percent (from 4,600 to 5,100) to "enhance the quality of the overall educational experience at Princeton and make more effective use of the University's extraordinary resources." The increase would be phased in over four years, probably beginning three or four years from now after additional dormitory and dining space has been constructed.
