Princeton International Magazine Launches
PIIRS, along with its partners, the Office of International Programs and the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs and Operations, has launched Princeton's first international magazine. Princeton International was mailed with the December 6 issue of Princeton Alumni Weekly to the Princeton community and will be available on campus.
The magazine contains articles highlighting the extensive international initiatives and opportunities available to Princeton students and faculty. The cover story on "Experiencing China" describes the PIIRS Global Seminar held this past summer in Beijing led by renowned sociologist Yu Xie, director of the Center on Contemporary China. Stories on students' experiences with the Bridge Year Program, study abroad programs, International Internships and PIIRS Undergraduate Fellowships underscore the outstanding experiences available for international travel and learning at the university. International scholarship led by University faculty are also centerpieces of the publication along with stories highlighting the University's many international initiatives both abroad and on campus.
In his opening letter in the magazine, President Eisgruber '83 wrote, "Internationalization is important to many of Princeton's priorities. The University's Strategic Framework recognizes the need to prepare students to be citizens of a "globalized world" and to give faculty the resources to address its challenges. A special task force on regional studies at Princeton has encouraged us to build on existing strengths by adding faculty and expanding programs in key regions. We are moving forward with these goals, and Princeton International offers a wonderful glimpse into our efforts."
