The program is a supportive pipeline connecting students to resources that aid in pursuing academic and professional goals, while also providing enriching life opportunities.
  • FSI is a seven-week summer program that allows a cohort of entering students the chance to experience the intellectual, co-curricular, and social life at Princeton prior to the beginning of the fall semester.
  • The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship program is the centerpiece of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s initiatives to increase diversity in the faculty ranks of institutions of higher learning.


Our Programs

The Office of the Dean of the College (ODOC) is committed to supporting programs and initiatives that advance Princeton's commitment to an inclusive student body. Our programs for access and inclusion are designed to provide all students with the mentorship, academic enrichment, and community that they need to thrive at Princeton, empowering them to successfully navigate the University’s many resources, to achieve their scholarly goals, and to become active leaders in the academic community. The initiatives highlighted here are part of ODOC’s larger commitment to supporting student-scholars throughout their time at the University—as they transition to college, find success, and, ultimately, prepare for life after Princeton.
