About EDI @ PUP
PUP’s EDI Board is comprised of current Princeton students who care deeply about maintaining an inclusive PUP community. Our jobs are to serve as trusted points of contact for you, your cast, and your production team, to provide opinions on important decisions pertaining to equity, diversity, and inclusion, and talk with you about any issues you may be facing, and to ensure that your production process is a positive one for all involved. We are here to support students in making theater that all members of the PUP community can look at with pride.
PUP’s EDI Board can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also feel free to contact any member(s) of PUP’s EDI Board individually with any questions or concerns you may have.
