The Committee on Academic Programs for Alumni (CAPA) works with the Alumni Association’s alumni education staff to build and maintain a lifelong learning relationship between the university and its alumni, parents, and friends. The committee evaluates the suitability of topics, program formats, and faculty members for the alumni education audience. Moreover, CAPA plays a crucial role as ambassadors of alumni education, seeking to broaden awareness of and participation in alumni education programs. Key CAPA events include the annual selection of Emerging Alumni Scholar honorees and a recipient of the CAPA Award for Excellence in Alumni Education.

Award for Excellence in Alumni Education

The Award for Excellence in Alumni Education is presented annually to one individual or group that has made an outstanding contribution to alumni education at Princeton.
