Advocacy & Activism

SPEAR installation

The Pace Center for Civic Engagement recognizes a wide range of student organizations. From advocating for prison education reform, to building a community around social entrepreneurship, to organizing to ensure fair and adequate health care, student organizations tackle a wide array of societal issues that affect our local and global communities. 

If you have an idea for a new student organization, feel reach out to Pace Center Senior Associate Director, Elsie Sheidler at sheidler@princeton.edu to learn how to propose a new service group

Student organizations approved and sponsored by the Pace Center  abide by the general University regulation and policies appearing in the current edition of Rights, Rules and Responsibilities, Undergraduate Announcement and the policies set forth for student organizations recognized and supported by the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students (ODUS).
