Higher Ed Partners

Work with Princeton graduate students at your institution!

We collaborate with higher education leaders to promote access, social mobility, and inclusive economic development and innovation within our state and throughout the world.

Experiential programs are a key component of the GradFUTURES approach to professional development. We offer several opportunities for our doctoral students to substantively engage with students and higher education leaders in diverse educational settings. Through these experiences, they have the chance to make meaningful contributions to the mission and goals of their host institutions—and build important relationships within the broader academic community. We are currently expanding the number of community college partners, and are delighted to discuss the creation of an administrative fellow role at other institutions.

“The MCCC / Princeton Teaching Partnership Program was an exciting opportunity to practice motivating students from a variety of backgrounds through refined science communication and development of course resources to go hand-in-hand with class material. Student engagement in response to implementing certain teaching strategies enabled me to grow as an educator and decipher how best to help students internalize dense material. This opportunity is a great way for Princeton PhD candidates to gain confidence with their ability to inspire in the classroom and navigate the challenges involved with leading a course for a semester."
