“As the first person in my extended family to graduate from college, it was important to participate in the JSI. It opened up my eyes to the world of public policy and a graduate education” — Alejandra Herrera Chávez, MPA/URP ’03
PPIA Junior Summer Institute
Since 1985, the Woodrow Wilson School has hosted a Junior Summer Institute as part of its proud tradition of promoting diversity at Princeton University and in the public service arena.
The goal of the program is to prepare students for graduate study and careers in public policy and international affairs.
The Junior Summer Institute provides participants with the tools for critical thinking, speaking, writing and quantitative reasoning, and with the skills and experiences necessary to create, analyze, implement, evaluate and affect policy in a multicultural, multiethnic society.
