On Nov. 3, more than 140 young alumni volunteers returned to Princeton for Annual Giving (AG) BootCamp, where recent grads (from the classes of 2009 to 2018) call, text, and Snapchat their classmates to ask them to make a gift to Annual Giving. The one-day event helps alumni hone their volunteer peer-to-peer fundraising skills and gives them an opportunity to give back to the University.

Princeton will establish a technology and democracy program within the University’s Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP), a leading authority on issues related to artificial intelligence, internet privacy and security, big data, cryptocurrencies and the impact of digital technologies on society. The new program, made possible by a gift from an anonymous donor, will include a first-of-its-kind technology policy clinic that will enable technical specialists to provide nonpartisan studies and expertise on emerging technologies to federal, state and local policymakers so that elected officials can make better informed decisions on behalf of the public.
