During this unsettling time, Princeton’s informal motto — “In the nation’s service and the service of humanity” — takes on an even greater resonance as we confront the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. From the front lines at the hospitals to the homefront of neighborhood communities, Princeton alumni, faculty, staff and students are helping fellow Tigers and serving others in need.
The women who attended Princeton during the first decade of coeducation set precedents with every achievement, and their role as pioneers did not end when they exited campus through FitzRandolph Gate. As alumnae, they continued to push on doors that had previously been closed to women, and the contributions they’ve made helped Princeton evolve into a stronger, more welcoming institution.
What’s next for She Roars? Alumnae have continued the momentum, with Princeton Women’s Networks (PWNs) and regional associations hosting She Roars On events that have reinvigorated women’s networks that had become dormant — and have doubled PWN chapters.
Alexandra Day ’02 returned to Princeton in January as the new deputy vice president for alumni engagement and director of the Alumni Council. She relocated to a home in downtown Princeton from New York City, where she had worked as vice president for public affairs at The Juilliard School. She recently fielded a few questions about her love for Princeton, the music of Richard Wagner and the global reach of Princeton pride.
The founding of the John Maclean Society in the early 1980s was a team project, but Bob McCartney ’56 might be considered its earliest champion. As vice chair of the Alumni Council Executive Committee in 1982, he established the society’s mission in a letter: “I would like to see us come up with some means of recognizing long-term alumni service to the University in various areas of activity. Perhaps one means of doing so might be the creation of a president's club or similar group.”
Alumni and the entire Princeton community welcomed the Class of 2023 as they marched through the FitzRandolph Gate on Sept. 8. President Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83 addressed the new students in the University Chapel and then joined them in the Pre-rade procession that culminated with a Step Sing on the steps of Clio Hall.
Initiated by the PACE CENTER FOR CIVIC ENGAGEMENT, January is considered the “MONTH OF SERVICE” on campus during which Princeton students, faculty and staff join together to serve local communities in need. This year, the ALUMNI COUNCIL’S COMMITTEE ON COMMUNITY SERVICE is also participating in the program. “Tigers in Service” encourages alumni to participate in service projects around campus or at home and is extended through February to allow more time for planning.
