Respond Virtually

As Princeton University continues to update policies and guidance regarding COVID-19, all of us here at the John H. Pace ’39 Center for Civic Engagement want you to know that we are here for you. As we all adjust to learning virtually, we are also thinking carefully about what it means to serve and engage virtually.

To help you navigate what this means for you in your home community, and for the greater Princeton community, we have curated a number of tips, resources, information, and ideas to virtually respond and engage. 


Stay Informed

Being an informed citizen is an important part of civic engagement. Use the following tips to combat misinformation and stay on top of what's happening in your community.

Be Prepared

Why do you want to engage? What skills do you bring to the table? What's already happening? In the Field Guide to Service you can use simple activities to pause and find out the answers to these and other important questions. 

Share Gratitude

There are many ways to express your gratitude for family, friends, and community. 

Respond Locally

How can you continue to support the local Princeton, Trenton, and surrounding communities? Use these resources to learn about ongoing efforts.
