President Eisgruber has started a new tradition – the Pre-Read – and has sent each member of the incoming freshman class a copy of Kwame Anthony Appiah’s The Honor Code.

All alumni and other members of the Princeton community are invited to join in the Pre-Read.

To that end, the Alumni Education team has put together a program, including on-line precepts, beginning with a speech by Kwame Anthony Appiah on September 8th and continuing with precepts throughout the fall.
