Princeton is known for shaping leaders who embody the University’s motto: “In the Nation’s service, and the service of humanity.” We connect your classroom curriculum to your passion to lead change and serve social progress. As you engage, you build skills that carry you through your Princeton experience and promote change beyond the campus.

The University’s service and leadership programs inspire you to volunteer in the community and gain practical leadership skills like confidence, assertive communication, and decision-making.

  • The Pace Center for Civic Engagement connects you with community organizations, local youth and peers, and programs where you discover new perspectives that promote change and progress. 
  • The Princeton Women’s Mentorship Program assembles a community of students and mentors that empowers undergraduate women to take on leadership roles. They create opportunities for you to find your voice, influence others, make decisions, and realize your leadership potential.
  • Princeton Army ROTC trains student cadets to be leaders in professions that span the globe in the military and beyond. Cadets are your peers - extraordinary students who embody the ROTC model of being a scholar, athlete, and leader.  

Your commitment to serving others and leading progress is nurtured before you step foot on campus and endures long after you graduate.
