Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs (WWS) has unveiled a mission statement designed to convey the School’s purpose, values, and ethos. Written collaboratively by the WWS faculty, the statement is the culmination of a months-long discovery process. WWS faculty, administrative leadership, students, alumni, and some University Trustees were invited to share thoughts through focus groups and a formal survey, with the submissions formulating the statement’s themes. 
 
The mission statement serves as the guiding force behind a redesign of the Woodrow Wilson School’s website, to be unveiled later this year.
 
“I want to sincerely thank those who participated in focus groups, completed the survey, and/or shared other thoughts,” said Dean Cecilia Rouse. “I believe our faculty have created an impactful statement clearly conveying the advantages of the Woodrow Wilson School.”
 

In Service to the Nation and Humanity

 
Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School dedicates itself to integrating world-class scholarship and a commitment to service in order to make a positive difference in the world.
 
Our faculty, staff, and students develop and lead creative approaches to the challenges of public and international affairs, with particular emphasis on diverse scholarly perspectives and evidence-based analysis.
 
We welcome a robust exchange of ideas and strive to foster a close-knit community that values and supports every member. 
 
We believe that public policy in the 21st century demands a passion for service, a respect for evidence of unsurpassed quality, a global perspective, and a multiplicity of voices.
