Princeton RISE ( Recognizing Inequities and Standing for Equality)

Service at Princeton is about responding to the needs of the world. Those needs have become more visible with the Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian lives lost to the pandemic, police violence, and citizen vigilantism. Persistent, recent, and continuing acts of systemic racism are calling us to address inequalities and injustices and particularly anti-Blackness.
Princeton RISE (Recognizing Inequities and Standing for Equality) pairs undergraduate and graduate students with community organizations to foster students' enduring and sustained commitment to civic engagement.
