GradFUTURES is proud to play its part in facilitating the already strong links between Princeton University Press and Princeton graduate students. Our collective aim is to create a series of regularly scheduled events, asynchronous content, and experiential opportunities in order to:

  • Provide information about contemporary publishing practices for graduate students interested in publishing their own work in the academic sphere
  • Show graduate students considering a career in publishing the internal functioning of the Press, and the broader field of careers at academic presses
  • Compile related resources online in ways that are intuitive and easily accessible to graduate students
