Princeton Encourages Students to Report ‘Identity’ Incidents

“there are always resources available to help you manage your experience”

Identity incidents are apparently anything anyone says that makes you feel uncomfortable about your identity.

Campus Reform reports:

Princeton implores students to report ‘identity’ incidents

Princeton University is encouraging students to report “problematic experiences based on [their] identity,” encompassing behaviors ranging from the “unpleasant” to the “disturbing.”

Posters distributed across the Ivy League school’s campus by the Office of the Vice Provost for Institutional Equity and Diversity note that “not every experience can or should be addressed through a disciplinary process,” but reassure students that “there are always resources available to help you manage your experience.” They encourage students to “consider reporting your experience.”

“Even if you do not want to pursue disciplinary action, or your experience is not appropriate for disciplinary action,” the posters proclaim that reporting negative identity-related incidents “helps Princeton monitor behavior on campus and identify opportunities to improve it.”

The flyer lists several reporting options, such as the opportunity to “talk to someone informally” at the Carl A. Fields Center for Diversity and Cultural Understanding, the Women*s Center, the LGBT Center, the International Center, the Office of Religious Life, or the Office of Disability Services.
