Alumni-Faculty Forums

A Reunions tradition for over 40 years, the Alumni-Faculty Forums (AFFs) bring together alumni panelists from the major reunion classes and the Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni (APGA) for discussions of a broad range of timely or timeless topics. Moderated by members of the faculty or administration, the forums attract thousands of alumni and guests each year.

Pre-read

The Pre-read program, initiated by President Eisgruber in 2013, introduces the incoming class to the intellectual life of the University. First-year students read and discuss a book that President Eisgruber selects that is mailed to them prior to their arrival on campus. Incoming class members then participate in Pre-read discussions with student leaders during Orientation Week and with President Eisgruber in the residential colleges and elsewhere on campus over the course of the academic year. Alumni also are encouraged to read and discuss the Pre-read selection.

Pre-read 2020

President Eisgruber’s Princeton Pre-read selection for the Class of 2024 is “This America: The Case for the Nation” by Jill Lepore, the David Woods Kemper ’41 Professor of American History at Harvard University.

The book explores the idea of the nation. It asks how Americans, and the people of other nations, can see themselves as united by a shared commitment to genuinely inclusive ideals despite differences and disagreements that might pull them apart. “This America” invites conversation, active engagement and thoughtful argument, President Eisgruber said.
