Wilson legacy committee sets forum for Feb. 19 in Richardson Auditorium

The special trustee committee that is considering Woodrow Wilson's legacy at Princeton University has scheduled a public forum from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 19 at Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall.

The event is part of a series of on-campus, in-person conversations with members of the committee that began in January.

Members of the committee will attend the Feb. 15 meeting of the Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC).

The committee is continuing a series of small group discussions for which those interested may sign up through the committee's website. It also offers an opportunity to submit written observations and opinions directly to the committee.  

The website asks for views about Wilson's record and impact as a faculty member and president of Princeton; his record and impact as president of the United States; his legacy at Princeton today and how it is and should be commemorated; and representations on campus of Princeton’s broader historical legacy. 

The committee has also posted observations from scholars and biographers with relevant expertise to share their understandings of Wilson and his legacy.
