Wintersession and Campus Engagement

The Office of Wintersession and Campus Engagement is a two-week experience for Princeton University community members to experiment and explore through unexpected, active and intriguing non-graded learning and development opportunities. Undergraduate students, graduate students, staff and faculty can participate as teachers, learners or both.

Who We Are

The Office of Wintersession and Campus Engagement was founded in the fall of 2019 and leads a variety of campus engagement initiatives and programs for undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff.

What We Do

The largest of our office’s initiatives is Wintersession, which is a two-week experience for Princeton University community members to experiment and explore through unexpected, active and intriguing non-graded learning and growth opportunities, launching in January 2021 and occurring annually each year after that.

Like a conference, undergraduate students, graduate students, staff and faculty can submit proposals to lead a session. Like a festival, there will be keynote and evening offerings that anyone in the University community can attend and that will be put on by a combination of the central Wintersession office, other campus offices and student groups. We seek to use the skills and talents of our whole community: undergraduate students, graduate students, staff and faculty can participate as teachers, learners or both.
