Princeton RISE

Students with Community House Crossings Working Together

Service at Princeton University is about responding to the needs of the world. In response to persistent, recent, and continuing acts of racism, the John H. Pace, Jr. '39 Center for Civic Engagement launched Princeton RISE (Recognizing Inequities and Standing for Equality), an anti-racist grant initiative. Partners submitted racial justice projects and the Pace Center matched students’ interests and skills to those needs. During the summer of 2020, Princeton RISE fellows had an opportunity to listen to and work with communities, explore and advocate for racial justice broadly, learn about societal inequities in areas such as health, criminal justice, and education, make a substantive contribution to the research and mission of campus and community partners. 

The Pace Center is grateful for the partnership and support of the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality + Cultural Understanding, Princeton Environmental Institute, and Princeton School of Public and International Affairs.

Applications for summer 2020 are closed. Please contact Pace Center Executive Director Kimberly de los Santos at if you have any questions.
