I am grateful that Princeton is creating more opportunities and spaces for students to work alongside communities and fight for racial justice, while also learning about themselves and the world in the process.

Work at the Pace Center

The Pace Center is looking to hire both undergraduate and graduate students this academic year to support our work in service and civic engagement. 

Fall Begins with New Team Members

As we start a new academic year, we are pleased to welcome four new team members to the John H. Pace, Jr. '39 Center for Civic Engagement supporting sustained volunteering, community engagement, and first-year service experiences. 

Summer Connections

What does it mean to get to know a place? For Princeton University students engaging in summer service internships in the Mercer County, NJ and Philadelphia areas, the Pace Center for Civic Engagement offered a unique opportunity to learn more about the places where they were living and working over the summer. 

Learning in Place

In July, members of the Pace Center for Civic Engagement and the Office of Community and Regional Affairs attended the Place-Based Justice Network's Summer Institute at the University of Pittsburgh. 


Career and Alumni Advice Panels

How have Princeton alumni engaged in service and civic engagement while navigating their careers? Students participating in the Pace Center for Civic Engagement's summer service internship programs are welcome to join Princeton University alumni for conversation in a series of virtual panel discussions July 12-14.
