Princeton Presidential Search Committee - Send Your Thoughts

Dear Princeton Alumni: 
As you are all aware, President Tilghman will step down as President of Princeton in June 2013. As alumni we all have an obligation to assist Princeton in their search for a new President. The presidential Search Committee established a Web site for the purpose of soliciting comments and suggestions regarding the search process. I encourage everyone to send your thoughts and suggestions to the Search Committee.

Harris' research interests include social inequality, policy, and education. His work focuses on the social psychological determinants of the racial achievement gap. Specifically, he examines the factors that contribute to differences in academic investment among African Americans, Latino/as, Asian Americans, and Whites. Harris also studies the impact that adolescents' perceptions of opportunities for upward socio-economic mobility have for their academic investment, and the long-term effects of youths' occupational aspirations both within the United States and Europe.
