Freshman Seminars in Service and Civic Engagement

How has Princeton University historically been connected to the institution of slavery? Does your zip code determine your health outcomes? Can we map the historical and current cultural and political life of Princeton and Trenton? These and other similar questions are addressed each semester through Freshman Seminars in Service and Civic Engagement, a collaboration between the Freshman Seminars Program, the Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship (ProCES), and partners in the community. These courses involve a substantial service or civic engagement components and provide students with exciting opportunities to connect their in-class learning with service in the external community.

Due to the success of these courses, we plan to offer the Freshman Seminars in Service and Civic Engagement again next academic year. Interested faculty should refer to the Freshman Seminar Call for Proposals for additional information.
