CAAS Graduate Affairs aims to bring together Princeton graduate students from all corners of campus to discuss their shared research interests in the interdisciplinary and intersectional study of race, gender, sexuality and class in the humanities, the social sciences and in public policy. As a unit, we are focused on cultivating a space in which students can network, collaborate, and communicate with each other about research, course work, and professional goals. CAAS Grad Affairs (CGA) offers programming that promotes mentoring, advising, and support in the academic professionalization process. It is a unit that affirms and celebrates interdisciplinary scholarship and coalition building in Princeton’s graduate community.
