Quotes from University leaders about Princeton Research Day:
"Princeton Research Day provides a chance for undergraduate students to share their scholarship with the broader campus community."

-- Jill Dolan, dean of the college, the Annan Professor in English, and professor of English and theater in the Lewis Center for the Arts.



"For graduate students, this is an excellent professional development opportunity to hone presentation skills and to hear about interesting research from colleagues across campus."

-- Sanjeev Kulkarni, dean of the Graduate School and professor of electrical engineering,



"Princeton Research Day provides a fantastic opportunity to look into the future — to appreciate the work of talented Princetonians who will be at the forefront of research, scholarship and the arts in the decades to come. I would like to encourage postdocs, in particular, to participate."

-- Deborah Prentice, dean of the faculty and the Alexander Stewart 1886 Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs.



"The ability to reach across disciplines and communicate about one's research or creative work in everyday language can lead to new collaborations, new insights into the work, and new directions of inquiry."

-- Pablo Debenedetti, dean for research, Class of 1950 Professor in Engineering and Applied Science, and professor of chemical and biological engineering.
