Three senior leaders at Princeton — the president, provost and vice dean for innovation — appear on ROI-NJ's annual list of higher education influencers in New Jersey.

President Christopher L. Eisgruber and Provost Jennifer Rexford are ranked No. 2 and No. 9, respectively, on the business publication's Top 10 higher ed influencers list(Link is external) released May 15.

"The launching of the state’s AI Hub at Princeton(Link is external), a key business initiative for the next generation, is just the latest reason why the university is regularly noted as the best in the country, if not the world," the ROI-NJ citation said. "At a time of severe challenges in higher ed, Eisgruber has deftly handled all potential crisis situations while transforming Princeton into a school that not only is a leader in liberal arts and computer science, but a model for equity and inclusion."
