Enhance Teaching and Learning

In the Office of the Dean of the College, we work closely with the academic departments and programs on a range of issues to advance undergraduate teaching and learning. These include all matters relating to academic advising, the curriculum, undergraduate research, academic regulations and grading. These sections of our site provide information that will be useful to chairs, program directors, departmental representatives, faculty advisers, departmental academic managers and undergraduate administrators.

The section on course policies and practices provides a compendium for faculty teaching undergraduate courses. The McGraw Center for Teaching & Learning coordinates our academic technology initiatives, including Princeton’s free online learning platforms, Coursera, NovoEd, Kadenze and edX. Faculty members looking to incorporate technology such as clickers or recorded lectures into their teaching should consult the Educational and Classroom Technologies group at the McGraw Center.

In early spring, academic managers will want to visit our page on undergraduate prizes to review the procedures for the administration of academic prizes and awards which are presented on Class Day.

Many undergraduate students desire to augment their classroom learning experience by working or interning at Princeton. The Policy on Undergraduate Internships and Employment establishes the criteria and requirements for offering training or research opportunities to both Princeton and visiting undergraduates. The Office of the Dean of the College manages the approval process for these internship and educational programs.
