The Princeton Prize in Race Relations - Philadelphia


The Princeton Prize in Race Relations was created to identify and commend young people who are working to increase understanding and mutual respect among all races. Through this effort, we hope to inspire others to join in these or similar efforts and to undertake initiatives of their own. With the Princeton Prize, the University intends to reach beyond its own campus to recognize the efforts of America's next generation of leaders.

The Princeton Club of Philadelphia was one of the earliest regional supporters of this effort that is currently in 24 regions. We have a dedicated committee that reviews applications from the greater Philadelphia region and determines the award recipient as well as certificate winners. If you have an interest in helping promote racial harmony and engaging in energizing and engaging dialogue with fellow Princetonians, please consider joining this committee. We welcome new voices!

Princeton University sponsors this annual awards program for high school students. This year, applications postmarked by January 31, 2013 are eligible for prizes—including cash awards up to $1,000 for particularly noteworthy work. If you know of a high school student who is helping to improve race relations, please encourage him or her to apply.

Princeton Global Net Night


What is a Net Night?

A NetNight is a Princeton-affiliated networking event, organized by a regional association, that brings together Princetonians who want to further their career development and strengthen their network.

Second Annual Global NetNight: March 14, 2012

This past March, over twenty-five local alumni (ranging from the classes of 1970 to 2011!) convened for an evening of networking and were joined by Sandy Mannix (P’12), a Legal Recruiter and Resume Consultant.  Sandy gave a brief presentation to the group on resume and networking best-practices and then spent the majority of the evening answering questions from the captive audience!  The evening was a great success and we look forward to another great event in the future.

A bit more about this year’s speaker, Sandy Mannix:

Sandy has more than 35 years of experience in professional education, recruitment, retention and communications! Before joining Abelson Legal Search, she served as the Director of Admission and Financial Aid at the Villanova University School of Law for 13 years and as the Vice President of Student Affairs at the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine. She also has been an administrator at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and worked as a professional consultant for several local, statewide and national political campaigns.
