The Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS), in conjunction with the Office of International Programs and the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs and Operations launched the 2020 edition of Princeton University’s international magazine, “Princeton International.”

“Princeton International” is an annual magazine that highlights the University’s international initiatives and projects. The publication introduces readers to the innovative and multifaceted learning, research and teaching being conducted across the globe by undergraduates, graduate students and faculty members.

The issue’s highlights the historic impact of the pandemic on the Princeton community and the new ways in University has found to engage with the world. The magazine includes stories about researchers who have worked to reduce the threat of COVID-19, undergraduates who took advantage of language programs and virtual internships in over 45 countries, and the University library’s digitization and access efforts

“It may seem mildly counter-intuitive — if not outright dissonant — to be releasing this fifth edition of Princeton International in a year that has compelled us to turn inward, homeward and seemingly away from the wider world,” wrote Aly Kassam-Remtulla, associate provost for international affairs and operations in his opening letter. “However, as I contemplated the stories in these pages and reflected on the extraordinary changes wrought in the months since I became associate provost, I was struck by the remarkable ingenuity, resilience and grace with which the Princeton community has managed to maintain its commitment to international scholarship. This in the face of long odds and — for international students in particular — significant adversity. Indeed, in some respects, Princeton is a more global institution today than it has ever been in its storied history.”
