Initiatives

The Office of the Dean of the College is engaged in several key initiatives to enhance the academic experience for our undergraduates. Check back periodically for news, updates and events.

What’s New in the Classroom

Princeton aims to be distinctive among research universities in its central and enduring commitment to undergraduate teaching. The Office of the Dean of the College actively supports excellence in undergraduate education through course development, curricular innovation and a broad range of workshops, seminars and consultations for faculty and students offered by the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.

Educating Global Citizens

In order to prepare Princeton students for leadership and service in an increasingly interdependent and culturally diverse world, we encourage every undergraduate to spend time abroad in a structured international experience. In doing so, students can improve their grasp of international affairs, develop an understanding of other cultures and strengthen their proficiency in foreign languages.
