Mission Statement

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.
