Education Secretary Launches Investigation of Princeton

Discrimination inquiry made after university acknowledged racism on campus.

Princeton joined a number of organizations, in the wake of continuing racial protests around the country, that publicly acknowledge a culture of racism in both its founding and its current campus culture. Education Secretary Betsy Devos found this public relations move to be a “shocking” admission to the violation of anti-discrimination laws and opened a formal inquiry against Princeton.

The university receives millions in federal funding each year, and the investigation the U.S. Education Department has opened will require the institution to “produce each record” on which President Eisgruber based his statement that racism is “embedded in structures of the University itself.” The Department of Education is also requesting a list of all persons who have been excluded from federally funded education programs due to racism at Princeton.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the U.S. Education Department as they fight for truth in our schools.
  • That freedom of ideas and discussion would be preserved along with justice.
  • That Secretary DeVos would be given strength as she advocates for American students.
