In 2014, Princeton University was found to be inadequately implementing Title IX procedures by the Department of Justice. It is unacceptable that after this indictment the University’s Title IX system remains broken. Individually, we have tried to pursue reform through bureaucratic processes and meetings with various administrators. This has not worked. The University has shown greater concern for its property and reputation than survivors’ pain. Survivors’ voices have been marginalized for too long, and their moment to be heard is long past due. We demand more. We are a coalition of Princeton students seeking to reform Title IX policies at our school through a series of demands on the University. This statement outlines concrete actionable calls for reform that can and should be met urgently.

This box will soon be added to the graduate application as well. Because conviction history is based on a deeply unjust and discriminatory system, this question is not an unbiased indicator of culpability or character: instead, it enables discrimination and undermines qualified students’ efforts to compete equally. The precedent to remove the box has already been established in multiple institutions nationwide. Notably, there is no statistically significant difference in crime rates for schools with and without the box, and about 97 percent of students who commit misconduct on campuses have no prior criminal record. In 2018, the Common Application dropped questions regarding previous conviction history from its main application, placing the onus on individual institutions to include or exclude the questions from their supplemental application. Now, it is time for Princeton to join this movement. More information on Ban the Box can be found here: http://princetonspear.com/ban-the-box-2018 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •  All of our signatures will then be presented to the administration with the following statement: "We, the students and alumni of Princeton University, pledge to NOT participate in Annual Giving to the University until our demands concerning Title IX Reform and Ban the Box have been met."
