Princeton University

Princeton University is deeply devoted to enhancing the lives of citizens around the world, and particular institutions within this world-renown university will be working with STEMCivics to improve the educational experience for its students.

The PACE Center for Civic Engagement will be involved in curricular and extra-curricular activities with students at STEMCivics.   The founders have worked with this outstanding group of students in the past, and have witnessed their capacity to inspire students.

Community House is committed to closing the minority achievement gap by providing programs that bolster early childhood literacy, promote the mastery of fundamental academic skills, and create early awareness of post-secondary opportunities for underserved minority youth. Through collaborative partnerships, Community House works to ensure that these students are able to realize their academic dreams.

Community House programs are managed and implemented by undergraduate volunteers from Princeton University. They provide tutoring and mentoring for local students from preschool through high school, as well as after-school enrichment and summer programs in math, science, reading, and writing for middle school and high school students.

The Community-Based Learning Initiative (CBLI) connects students' academic work with their interest in and concern for the communities around the University.  Currently, CBLI has posted these two research questions for students to pursue that will specifically benefit STEMCivics:

  • "What programming and curricula are currently in use across the country in similar schools?"
  • "What types of civic engagement activities and programs have been proven to promote voting and academic achievement in high school students?"

Princeton University students who are interested in STEM and civics can research these questions and share their findings with STEMCivics.
