Princeton University has provided Project Stand with materials from two very unique and innovative archival projects related to student activism. These include The First One Hundred Days Collection, a collection of protest materials from members of the Princeton community in response to the administration of President Donald J. Trump, and the Archiving Student Activism at Princeton Collection (A.S.A.P.), a project that pre-dates Project Stand but holds a very similar mission with regard to documenting the varied causes, interests, and advocacy efforts of the Princeton student community.
In addition to the special project materials described above, Princeton has also shared records from The Lesbian Gay Bisexual Alliance (LGBA), the social and political organization for lesbian, gay, and bisexual students at Princeton University. The LGBA is the successor to the Gay Alliance of Princeton (GAP), Gay Women of Princeton (GWOP), the Lesbian and Bisexual Task Force (LBTF), and Gay and Lesbian Alliance of Princeton (GALAP). The records contain material regarding the LGBA’s programs and its publications, as well as subject files assembled by the LGBA’s officers and staff.

Description: The Princeton University Archives launched the Archiving Student Activism at Princeton (ASAP) initiative in December of 2015 to collect and preserve individual and organizational records created by Princeton students who engage in activism on a broad range of issues and perspectives, both on campus and off.
