 August 21: Watch Campus Pride Intern Ayla Azim (She/Her) Interview representative, Eric Angiero (He/They), from Princeton University, a university that holds a 5/5 ranking on the Campus Pride Index. Eric serves as the interim associate director of the LGBT Center. This center works alongside other centers under the umbrella of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to ensure Princeton is an equitable place for all students. Princeton University’s LGBT Center was formed out of a desire both from students and alumni to have a space both for students to connect but also to serve as a place for advocacy on issues of sexuality and gender exploration. Now the center provides a variety of services both within house and with its many allies on campus. Groups like Athlete Ally, the Pride Alliance, PULPO LGBTQ+ Branch, and LGBTQJ are just some of the ways students both connect and support each other. Additionally, with the amazing work of Princeton’s Professors, Gender and Sexuality Studies are offered. Additionally with University Health Services (UHS) and Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) students can receive the care they need whether it be gender-affirming care, hormones, counseling, and more. Places like the Rainbow Lounge serve as a palace for students to relax and study knowing that they are with their community and feel a sense of belonging. Acknowledging that the needs of the LGBTQ+ community are not monolithic and continue to develop, Eric highlighted some of the policies he is most proud of at Princeton. Student health plans were developed to ensure that students can receive gender-affirming services at UHS and have guidance as they deal with insurance companies. Additionally, gender-inclusive dorms and bathrooms exist across campus. Finally, Eric spoke to Tiger Well which is dedicated to promoting a proactive approach to wellness on campus through counseling and other psychological services. These policies along with all of Princeton’s programs and organizations stand as a testament to their dedication to ensuring LGBTQ+ Students can engage with their college life fully just like any other student.
