Committees and Initiatives

The Executive Vice President is chair of several committees and directs a number of campus initiatives. 

Academic and Administrative Managers Group

The Academic and Administrative Managers Group (AAMG) is composed of managerial supervisors and other leaders involved in University administration. There are currently more than 400 members and the group meets three times each academic year. Membership is by invitation and is upon recommendation of a cabinet officer or, in the case of academic units, the associate dean for academic affairs.

Campus Art

The Campus Art Program at Princeton University seeks to enrich the University’s visual and intellectual environment by placing works of art in strategic locations across the campus. The Campus Art Program gives expression in intelligible and symbolic form to the experience of University members and visitors as members of a public society, relating individual works of public art to the educational, cultural, historical, social, or political dimensions of its environment. <<more>>

Campus Planning

Princeton's campus is simultaneously a site of historic significance and a constantly evolving space, a work in progress that is never truly completed. In December 2017, the University issued a planning framework to guide campus development over the next 10 years in the context of potential needs and developments over the next 30 years. <<more>>

Committee to Strengthen University Management and Resources 

The Committee to Strengthen University Management and Resources (SUMAR) identifies and supports efficiencies in central and academic administration that enable the release of resources toward teaching, research, and the student experience. 

Environmental, Safety, and Risk Management Committee

The Environmental, Safety, and Risk Management Committee (ESRM) reviews environmental health and safety issues as well as visitor and contractor safety, pollution prevention, building security systems, fleet safety, University-sponsored off-campus programs, special events and athletic events. The committee is responsible for developing policy and procedures to improve oversight of these areas from a safety and risk management perspective. 

Executive Compliance Committee

The Executive Compliance Committee is composed of senior members of the University’s management team and assists the chief audit and compliance officer in determining priorities, reviewing the internal audit/compliance plans and ensuring that both follow-up to internal audit/compliance reports occurs and appropriate disciplinary action is taken when violations arise. 

Executive Risk Management Committee

The Executive Risk Management Committee (ERMC) is responsible for reviewing and assessing the potential risks being assumed by the University to confirm that they are in alignment with the institutional mission and objectives and for ensuring that necessary mitigation strategies are in place, resourced appropriately, and integrated with existing initiatives to enhance management and control.
