goals of education

There is no question Woodrow Wilson, as President of Princeton University, did much to advance the goals of education. His progressive actions and his dream of a better world, free of its imperial stamp, were hugely influential in foreign policy goals moving forward. The League of Nations is his legacy to the United Nations of today.

But make no mistake about it: Wilson was an avowed racist who set back the cause of black people in America while he was President, and beyond. Princeton University’s Board of Trustees voted to remove Wilson’s name both from the School of Public Policy and International Affairs (!) AND a residential college on its campus. The decision of the college to do so can be found here.
