May 1 Day of Action Update

On May 1, PGSU members and Princeton grads – nearly 200 of them – had a Day of Action.


We were able to make 550+ calls to 4 key administrators at Princeton, filling their mailboxes and 7 others afterward! This follows our Stop-The-Clock petition to make a one-year funding extension available to all grads, which garnered nearly 900 signatures from Princeton grads, undergrads and allies. Of course, this was simply a response to their continued inaction on that issue, and this action is not the end! As long as the administration does not grant this necessary provision, we will be continuing to push them for it. If you would like to get involved with this and/or our other campaigns, email or become a member using the link in the menu above!


PGSU’s Day of Action

The following is a letter sent on 04/19/20 to signatories of our “Stop The Clock Petition” (see above to add your name). It is both a response to the recent communication by the administration (on 04/14/20) and a message that we are going to go beyond just petitions to push the administration to guarantee conditions to ensure the well-being of grads.  (more…)

PGSU response petition to Princeton administration regarding COVID-19

Here is our initial statement and petition to the university’s administration. As of 05/01/20, this document is no longer updating, because we are actively working on making a detailed platform for each item and pushing the administration in more direct and concrete ways. Over 600 people, Princeton grads and allies, signed the petition, which was submitted twice to over 25 administrators.


Please see our statement and petition to the university administration regarding the transition brought on by COVID-19. We do not want any of Princeton’s community members – no campus workers, undergrads, grads, postdocs or staff – to be left behind in this incredibly difficult time. Please add your name below and share – all are welcome to sign, regardless of any Princeton affiliation! We have also included an option to submit testimonials in the petition. Do not hesitate to reach out at if you have issues that are not being addressed either by the university or by the petition. We are all in this together!

A finalized version of the petition will be posted online, along with the signatories.

Submitted 1) on 03/19/20, 2) on 04/10/20
