Serving Our Community

Princeton University has a vibrant campus, and neighbors are encouraged to take advantage of its varied resources that include museums, libraries and events. Educational, cultural, recreational, religious, social service and athletic programs populate the calendar, and most are free and open to the public.

From special events such as the town-gown inaugural Porchfest, to year-round public lectures and theater performances, to outreach events such as the business attire clothing drive, the University is a resource for the entire community.

The University’s faculty, staff and students are proud to be good neighbors, and they work to put their time and talents to their best use in the community.

Student-athletes donate their time to develop character alongside physical skills; student volunteers work with residents of all ages through mentoring, entertaining and educating; and members of the faculty and staff participate as volunteer lecturers, board members and advisers in many local organizations.

The University also engages with the community through planning joint initiatives and working collaboratively to address common objectives.
