Hi! This is Tennille Haynes and I’m the director of the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding. We’re located at 58 Prospect Avenue and Palmer Street. The Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding strives to empower members of the University community as they seek to learn about self and understand the breadth of cultural and social differences among us and build the skills needed to create and leave a more just world. Cultural programs range from monthly events and speakers to special celebrations and artistic endeavors. The Carl Fields Center has three programs directly out of the Fields Center: P.U.M.P., Sustained Dialogue, and the Carl Fields Fellow program. The goal of P.U.M.P. is to assist students in their transition to campus life and provide them with a network to encourage academic and social exploration. P.U.M.P. matches each freshman participant with a mentor from the sophomore, junior, or senior class based on similar academic and social backgrounds. The Fields Center Fellows program encourages students to interact and work with members of the University community as well as visitors of the center. The Fellows serve as ambassadors of the Fields Center and work with cultural groups on campus as well as other members of the University community on issues such as intersection of race, class, and identity and social justice. The mission of Sustained Dialogue is to address race and other deep rooted social divisions like gender and religion through meaningful relationships cultivated and supported by ongoing dialogue. Participants meet for weekly dinners and inside residential colleges, eating clubs, and other designated locations in order to discuss issues with a constant group.
Hi! I’m Tennille Haynes and I’m the director of the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding. Welcome to Princeton and I hope to see you in the fall.
