Princeton University is declaring war on the word "man" as the Ivy League school aims to become a gender-neutral workplace.

FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:

In a four-page memo, Princeton University's HR department has instructed the school to essentially wipe the word "man" from its vocabulary.

The aim is to foster an inclusive environment. Instead of using "man," employees are told to use words such as human beings, individuals or people.

Employees of the Ivy League school have also been advised to use the term spouses or partners, instead of man and wife, and replace "man made" with artificial, handmade or manufactured.

New students are no longer "freshmen" but rather "first-year students." Students are not mandated to follow this new policy.
