Thrive: Empowering and Celebrating Princeton's Black Alumni
We’re in the midst of THRIVE 2019 on Princeton’s campus. It is wonderful to see so many Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs alumni back on campus. We always love to connect with you—here in Princeton and on the road.
Thrive: Empowering and Celebrating Princeton’s Black Alumni, runs from October 3 - 5, 2019.
The conference follows up on three previous black alumni conferences:
- 2006: Coming Back and Looking Forward Conference for Black Princeton Alumni;
- 2009: Coming Back, Moving Forward Conference for Black Princeton Alumni;
- 2014: Coming Back: Reconnecting Princeton’s Black Alumni.
This year, more than 1,400 alumni and guests are expected back on campus. Check out the schedule.
Here is a welcome message from Princeton alumna, Michelle Obama, class of 1985.
In 2018, it was She Roars, which celebrated women at Princeton. And in 2017, more than 750 undergraduate and graduate alumni and guests returned for the alumni conference ¡Adelante Tigres! which celebrated Latino Alumni at Princeton.
If any of these conferences sound exciting, or if you’re jazzed by community building across class years (and even generations), we hope you will consider applying to our community. Our application deadline is December 1.
