Even though the semester has just begun, now's the time to start thinking about what you could be doing over Fall or Spring Break! Applications are now open to go on a Breakout Princeton civic action break trip. Breakout Princeton trips are week-long opportunities to learn about and take action on complex public issues through community immersion, direct service, group discussions and reflection activities.
Find the service opportunity that's right for you at the Civic Engagement Student Activities Fair. From 12-3 PM on Friday, September 12 you can learn more about programs, projects and groups by meeting students already involved in civic engagement on campus, ask questions, and discover how you can make a difference at Princeton and in the community.
The fair will take place in the tent outside Dillon Gym.
In partnership with the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students (ODUS) and Undergraduate Student Government (USG).
When Lisette Nieves, MPA ’01, was 15 years old she was assigned a service project in high school to visit with senior citizens. It wasn’t something she picked yet it turned out to be so much more than she expected.
Working one-on-one with a Holocaust survivor in her 80s, Nieves helped organize pieces of the survivor’s experiences during the Holocaust inscribed on little bits of paper – experiences that had never been shared with family, friends, or anyone before.
On Tuesday, September 9, students, faculty and staff are invited to join the Pace Center for Civic Engagement for Reflections on Service, an annual orientation event designed to introduce the incoming freshmen to meaningful service at Princeton and to allow the greater community to reflect on the importance of civic engagement.
This year, keynote remarks by Lisette Nieves, MPA ’01, will be paired with student perspective from Tumise Asebiomo ’16 and Dallas Nan ’16 to explore “What makes service truly meaningful?” The event will start at 4:15 PM in McCosh 50.
