85 Princeton Undergraduates Share Their Summer of Learning Experiences
On Friday, October 3rd, eighty-five (85) Princeton undergraduates participated in the 7th Annual Summer of Learning symposium to share insights and outcomes from their summer 2014 internships and service experiences.
The Summer of Learning Symposium organized by the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) provides students the opportunity to present their research findings on scientific, technical, policy, and human dimensions of a wide-variety of global environmental challenges in energy and climate, sustainable development, and ecological health around the world.
In summer 2014, participating students travelled to destinations in the United States and 11 foreign nations on assignments with faculty-led research projects, academic institutions, NGOs, and government and community service enterprises.
“As interns, the students engaged in research, outreach, policy analysis, communications and other practical work experiences,” said Lars Hedin, chair of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a member of PEI’s faculty. Hedin was one of six faculty who moderated sessions during the Symposium. “This internship program clearly enriches students’ perspectives and helps prepare them as leaders,” he said.
