SPIA in NJ
Princeton’s School of Public and International Affairs is committed to the state we call home.
With SPIA in NJ, the School embraces its role as an anchor institution by leveraging its most important resource, its people, to produce and promote innovative policy statewide.
Students and faculty work with partners around New Jersey to generate research-based data and provide analysis that support policy aligned with racial, social, and economic justice.
A decidedly global institution, SPIA is not only in New Jersey, but also of it."
The tools we bring to this urgent work include research, scholarship, internships, teaching, convenings, partnerships, public events, as well as media leverage across platforms.
Our deep scholarly bench includes practitioners from the social and natural sciences, law, and history whose research agendas center on questions fundamental to health, housing, education, safety, democratic practice, and equity.
