Date: September 18, 2020

Location: Zoom

The 13th Annual Summer of Learning Symposium celebrates the 123 Princeton students from 20 academic departments who participated in the PEI Environmental Internship Program during the summer of 2020. They worked with University faculty, researchers from other scientific enterprises, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations on projects focused on pressing environmental challenges. The symposium provides an interactive forum for these students to recognize and celebrate each other’s work and contributions, exchange perspectives, develop a shared mission, and consider practical, achievable paths toward a healthier and more sustainable planet.

For questions regarding the symposium, please contact PEI Internship Program Manager Emily Ahmetaj.
