Facilities' Cloud Huntley works in Lewis Center for the Arts buildings and one of a handful of subjects in a series of portraits by artist Mario Moore. "Portraits on university campuses usually portray school founders, presidents and donors. But at Princeton University, portraits of blue-collar campus workers are now taking center stage. A new set of paintings are offering a fresh perspective on the working class, racial struggle and empowerment at the Ivy League school".
The Office of the Vice President provides leadership to the numerous departments working together under the Facilities Organization umbrella. We coordinate efforts across our departments to ensure that the skills and resources of the Facilities Organization support the University's academic mission and our beautiful campus. We support the sustainability mission of the University as we lead efforts to steward Princeton's resources in the most efficient and effective manner. Princeton University is a unique institution and because of that we have a unique responsibility: we strive to be the best and encourage every member of the Facilities Organization to do the same.
You can also find our friendly Service Center representatives in the MacMillan lobby, they are your central point of contact into our large organization.
