Effron Center for the Study of America established at Princeton through a major gift to the Venture Forward campaign

Monday, Nov 15, 2021

The establishment of the center realizes Princeton’s vision for the future of American studies as articulated in the 2016 report of the Task Force on American Studies, and in subsequent planning by faculty and administrators.

The Effron Center for the Study of America offers race and ethnicity studies — including Asian American, Latino, Native American and Indigenous, and American Jewish studies — in a holistic context of partnerships across the University, including with Princeton’s African American studies department, programs in gender and sexuality studies, English, history, law, religion, environmental studies, and the Lewis Center for the Arts.
