Princeton is where you are, and you make a difference for Princeton and the world wherever you are. Service, both to the University and to humanity, is an enduring value for alumni.

The Award for Service to Princeton was presented to three Princetonians during the annual meeting of the Alumni Council that was held on campus during Reunions.

“I see service as something that is multidimensional. It is not just a professional pursuit … service is also much more basic. It is about the relationships we build with families, friends and others in our communities. And service is also about our involvement in the world as citizens and voters, and as participants in our civic society.”

— Sonia Sotomayor ’76, Associate Justice, United States Supreme Court
