For most of its history, the Princeton Summer Journalism Program was primarily “staffed” by a team of dedicated volunteers with the support of two summer interns from 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 overseen by a joint steering committee staffed by representatives of the Provost’s Office, the Office of the Dean of the College, and PSJP directors. 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 program is coordinated by the PSJP Program Associate in collaboration with PICS interns who serve as the Program Coordinators and PSJP directors.
