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, Christine Gage (, if you would like to receive meeting notices).

YOUR COMMENTS ARE WELCOME!  The Council's Executive Committee has responsibility for setting meeting agendas.  The committee welcomes your suggestions.  If you have suggestions, please send them to the secretary of the Council, Christine Gage ( 

CPUC Special Committee on Naming

At the September 26, 2016, meeting of the CPUC, a special Committee on Naming was established.  The University homepage story gives details about the committee and its work.  The Trustees have asked the committee for advice on naming the atrium in Robertson Hall and West College.  The following gives a link to the committee's charge:  Committee on Naming.  The committee's website includes an opportunity for making suggestions about names for these facilities.
