The Princeton Hidden Minority Council
Our mission is simple; we want to advocate for the first generation and low income voices that aren't being heard, which is seen primarily through the lack of dialogue on campus and the stigma that is attached to this part of a student's identity. In order to accomplish this we intend on connecting students with the resources that currently exist, analyzing what additional resources could be beneficial, fostering a stronger community by sharing our narratives with each other, and providing insight to the larger Princeton community on what it can be like to be low-income or the first person in one’s family to attend college.
