At Princeton, we think about service in its broadest, most multifaceted sense. Service can mean engaging in activities connected to a larger purpose that aim to make a positive impact on society. Service can mean responding to injustice or inequality, tackling issues related to health, poverty, criminal justice, education, the environment or social responsibility, for example, through a variety of pathways, such as policy, advocacy, research, volunteering, or community activism.
With this broad definition of service in mind, we invite students to propose an idea for a new service group. We can help motivated students hone their leadership skills, move their ideas into action and make a positive impact on a social issue and/or community. The Pace Center supports the exploration and development process of your new service group idea with the New Service Group Proposal form.
Please carefully read and review the information in this form before completing and submitting it. If you have any questions after your review of the form, email Elsie Sheidler. Once you complete and submit the form, proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the academic year. Staff review proposals on Mondays. To ensure a Monday review, your proposal must be submitted by 5:00 pm on the Thursday prior. Within one week of staff review of your proposal, you will receive an email with next steps.
