The Louis A. Simpson International Building, made possible by a gift from Louis A. Simpson, a 1960 alumnus of Princeton’s Graduate School, and his wife, Kimberly K. Querrey, was dedicated on October 16, 2017.

Princeton attracts students and faculty from around the world, and sends its faculty and students to institutions abroad for research, study, work, and service. These international experiences are made possible with the support of an array of administrative and academic departments that had been housed throughout campus. Bringing them together in the Louis A. Simpson International Building enables undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members to access the information and resources they need and allow for closer cooperation and synergies among international programs.

“You have Princeton’s deepest thanks,” President Christopher L. Eisgruber told the couple, “for strengthening our efforts to prepare our students to thrive as citizens of the world.”

The Louis A. Simpson International Building is the home of the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, the Kathryn W. and Shelby Cullom Davis ’30 International Center, the Council for International Teaching and Research, the Bridge Year Program, the Office of International Programs, and Princeton in Asia, Princeton in Africa, and Princeton in Latin America.
