The goal of academic programming for alumni is to facilitate lifelong learning by connecting Princeton alumni to the academic richness of Princeton today, through the regional Speaker's Bureau, online and on campus lectures and panels, the Princeton Pre-read and other faculty books.
Alumni Event Lectures
Living at a distance from campus shouldn't preclude your participation in Alumni Education. As long as you have an Internet connection, you have access to lifelong learning at Princeton.
Many members of the faculty and administration welcome the opportunity to travel to deliver talks to Princetonians across the country. Examples include: "Samurai: The Way of the Warrior," "Watching the Infant Brain Learn and Develop," "Climate Change: Sea Level Rise and Local Impact" and "Woodrow Wilson and World War I: A Century Later."
The Pre-read program, initiated by President Eisgruber in 2013, introduces incoming freshmen to Princeton's intellectual life. Alumni and other University community members also are encouraged to read and discuss the Pre-read selection.
Game Day Lecture Series
Every fall, the Office of Alumni Affairs sponsors lectures on the mornings of selected home football games.
