Thinking Forward

This moment tests us. We could retreat and hope for better days ahead. But, at Princeton, we recognize our mission to serve humanity and, instead, choose to look at complexity as inspiration. This is a year to rethink our future. A year of resolve and unity, as we advance ideas and push the boundaries of knowledge. This is a year of discovery and possibility — A Year of Forward Thinking.

Forward Fest

Forward Fest is a monthly online series that will continue throughout A Year of Forward Thinking. The events, featuring Princeton faculty and alumni exploring a range of forward-thinking topics, will be free and open to the public. Sparking dialogue among the entire Princeton community — students, faculty, staff, alumni and other interested thinkers — Forward Fest will explore, engage and develop bold thinking for the future.

Forward Fest is free and open to the public. The January Forward Fest focused on Equity in Education. Download a resource guide for more information on featured speakers and other Princeton forward thinkers, with links to books, articles, podcasts and more.
