For most of its history, the Princeton Summer Journalism Program was primarily “staffed” by a team of dedicated volunteers with the support of the Pace Center for Civic Engagement and the Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS). In 2017, the Program joined the Princeton University Office of the Dean of the College and hired its first year-round employee.
Today, PSJP is one of two College Preparation Initiatives administered through the Emma Bloomberg Center for Access & Opportunity. The program is overseen by a joint steering committee staffed by PSJP staff and directors and representatives of the Offices of the Dean of the College and the Vice Provost for Institutional Equity & Diversity. Our team of professional journalists also continues to donate their time to select the program participants, staff the summer program, teach workshops, and serve as counselors during the academic year. The summer intensive is coordinated by the PSJP Assistant Director in collaboration with PICS interns who serve as the Program Coordinators and PSJP directors.
