As the interdisciplinary center of environmental research and education, PEI serves as a resource to a broad cross section of the Princeton University community. In addition, the Institute offers a wide range of programs, events, communications, and other outreach activities to benefit a more extensive audience.

Event Series

Throughout the academic year, PEI hosts a dynamic schedule of events focusing on current and emerging environmental topics. PEI’s annual events calendar includes the Taplin Environmental Lecture, several conferences and lecture series as well as numerous sponsored and affiliated event opportunities. Visitors with expertise in science, policy, and industry from academic, public, and private sectors are frequently featured in addition to lectures by Princeton faculty. Lectures are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted in publicized event announcements.


PEI supports an expansive network of collaborations to most productively leverage its resources, and to advance the acquisition of knowledge, and to inform perspective among faculty, students, alumni, and others with interest in environmental concerns. Our collaborations include multiple academic departments, programs, and centers at Princeton; student groups; alumni; community partners; academic institutions; and other environmentally focused enterprises. more>>
