The 14th Annual Summer of Learning Symposium celebrates the 127 Princeton students from 23 academic departments who worked with University faculty, researchers from other scientific enterprises, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations on projects focused on pressing environmental challenges. Held virtually this year, the symposium provides an interactive forum for 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 Internship Program Manager Emily Ahmetaj.
