    Princeton’s Reunions and Commencement to Get Some SPIA Supplements

    The School of Public and International Affairs will supplement Princeton’s Reunions and Commencement-related events with SPIA-specific gatherings and special events of its own over the next two weeks.

    SPIA in D.C. Launches With a Demonstration of Its Vast Potential

    Addressing more than 250 SPIA alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends on the rooftop deck at 1333 New Hampshire Avenue, NW – the School’s new home in Washington, D.C. – a bipartisan group of speakers lauded the SPIA in D.C. initiative at its May 10 launch as an important and worthy effort to repair what many see as a broken government.
