As Princeton reaches the end of the 2015-16 academic year, take a look back at the learning, research and activities that filled and fulfilled the lives of University community members.

We welcomed new students, faculty and staff, and celebrated old traditions. In classrooms and laboratories, on campus and abroad, students and faculty members engaged in critical thinking, made research discoveries and were honored for their achievements.

With a deep concern for the campus climate, members of the community examined the University's history and expanded Princeton's commitment to diversity and inclusion. The University also identified priorities through a new strategic planning framework and increased its financial aid budget, which ensures that a Princeton education is genuinely affordable for every admitted student.

As the academic year ended, alumni returned to campus to connect with familiar faces and places, and students celebrated graduation activities with friends and family and then walked out of FitzRandolph Gate with elation.
