Princeton University's CPUC (Council of the Princeton University Community) task force on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, beginning in the Fall of 2014, was charged with, "...developing recommendations for improving University policies, practices and programming regarding diversity, inclusion, and equity for the campus community"(CPUC).  Part of this charge included regular reporting on student and employee demographics to monitor progress in the areas of Gender, Race/Ethnicity, and U.S. Citizenship Status.

The "Diversity Dashboards" included here provide insight into these (4) areas related to the Princeton community of students, faculty, and staff.  Additional information on Diversity and Inclusion at Princeton University can be found by clicking on the link above or by visiting the Institutional Equity & Diversity website.
