2023 BADI Honorees

The Graduate School’s Office of Access, Diversity, and Inclusion held its first annual Best of Access, Diversity, and Inclusion (BADI) Awards on May 18, 2023 as part of the Inclusive Academy Symposium. The BADIs honor and celebrate underrepresented graduate students at Princeton University as well as those who are dedicated to uplifting and advancing them as researchers, scholars, mentors, and future leaders of academia, government, industry, and beyond. We are proud to shine a much-deserved light on the efforts of these exemplary graduate students, postdocs, staff, and faculty.    

Congratulations to the 2023 BADI honorees!
