Jennifer M. Morton’s book “Moving Up Without Losing Your Way: The Ethical Costs of Upward Mobility,” has been selected as the Princeton Pre-Read for the incoming Class of 2025. First-year students will read the book over the summer and have an opportunity to discuss its themes with Morton and President Christopher L. Eisgruber during Orientation. The book is the first Pre-read selection by a Latinx author.

The McGraw Center was pleased to host Jennifer Morton in our Inclusive Teaching at Princeton Series in December 2019. In the talk, she explored the ethical and emotional tolls paid by disadvantaged students seeking upward mobility and what educators can do to help these students flourish. She put forward this perspective and helped to think about how we can make higher education more accessible and inclusive for students of all backgrounds.

The transformative power of a college education and how to better support first-generation, lower-income students are at the heart of this year’s Princeton Pre-read, “Moving Up Without Losing Your Way: The Ethical Costs of Upward Mobility.” The book is written by philosopher and Princeton Class of 2002 graduate Jennifer M. Morton and is the first Pre-read selection by a Latinx author.

The Pre-read is a Princeton tradition that introduces first-year students to the intellectual life of the University by offering opportunities to engage with a book that is made available to students, faculty and staff. After arriving on campus, first-year students have an opportunity to discuss the book with its author and President Christopher L. Eisgruber during Orientation.
