PIIRS is Princeton University’s primary center for international and regional studies. We support cutting-edge research, innovative teaching, collaborative learning, visiting fellows, international networks and dynamic programming. By convening and supporting multidisciplinary centers, programs, and groups of faculty, students and visitors, we aim to foster academic analysis and public engagement around global challenges and regional dynamics.
Each summer, Princeton students span the globe to explore the international dimensions of their academic interests in six-week courses taught by University faculty. Offering unique insight into faculty research, they make the theoretical tangible through on-the-ground experiences.
