The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University seeks applications and nominations for their next Director of Graduate Admissions.
In 1930, Princeton University established the School of Public and International Affairs, as it was originally named, in the spirit of Woodrow Wilson's interest in preparing students for leadership in public and international affairs. The School's initial venture was an interdisciplinary program for undergraduates in Princeton's liberal arts college. In 1948, a graduate professional program was added, and the School was renamed to honor Woodrow Wilson, who served as the 13th president of Princeton University, Governor of New Jersey and 28th President of the United States. In 1961, Charles '26 and Marie Robertson provided a historic gift to expand and strengthen the graduate program. The endowment and its proceeds provided the means to build Robertson Hall, greatly expand the number of graduate students, and build a world-class faculty in multiple disciplines.
