Academic Programming

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.
