• I recently attended an amazing Princeton graduation. Only this Princeton graduation didn’t happen in front of Nassau Hall, and the traffic wasn’t the bustle of Nassau Street. At El Centro in Trenton, NJ, graduation revealed how truly meaningful service can be.
  • The Pace Center for Civic Engagement can't wait to see you at Reunions! Join us at one or more of our upcoming events on Friday, May 29.
  • As graduating seniors, we have been repeatedly told the University’s unofficial motto over four years: “In the Nation’s Service and in the Service of All Nations.” Before we walk through the FitzRandolph Gate, we wanted to reflect on why service is such a valuable part of our education.
  • Got extra clothes, books, school supplies, or unused food or toiletries? Don't throw them away! Donate them during Move Out at the 10 donation sites all across campus. All donations will be delivered to organizations in Mercer County, NJ.
  • The Pace Center for Civic Engagement shared special thanks with select community partners, student leaders and campus collaborators at Celebration of Service on Wednesday, May 13 for helping make meaningful service happen at Princeton and in the community!
  • Each week, Monday through Wednesday, Princeton University students travel to Rivera Middle School in Trenton, NJ. As a part of imPACT, a Student Volunteers Council (SVC) service project, the students tutor and mentor 11 sixth grade students.
  • The Pace Center is proud to announce a new interactive Find Your Pace Database where Princeton University students can search hundreds of service opportunities to find the right project, organization or program to join and engage.
