Miguel Centeno is a professor of sociology and public affairs and founder of the Princeton University Preparatory Program (PUPP), a rigorous academic and cultural enrichment program that supports high-achieving, low-income high school students. He also serves as faculty director of Princeton’s Presidential Scholars Program, which helps female and underrepresented minority students prepare for the nation’s top Ph.D. programs.
A well-known sociologist, Centeno studies a range of subjects related to globalization and trade and has published numerous articles, chapters, and books. His latest publication, “War & Society,” explores how war tears communities down, but can also create strong communal bonds. He is currently working on a book about the sociology of discipline.
Centeno served as chair of the Department of Sociology from 2012 to 2017 and was the founding director of the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, serving from 2003 to 2007.
