Title: The Efficacy of a Princeton University Education In A Deteriorating World
Authors: Scott-Young, Ellen

Class Year: 2020
Abstract: This thesis conducts a review of Princeton University’s environmental education and stewardship efforts, extended but not limited to specific issues such as mental health and career pathways. By interrogating the University as a global form and as having “corporate personhood”, issues of institutional identity, responsibility and neutrality arise. These issues are then mediated by reflexive practices through case examples (such as the University response to Hurricane Maria and the University stance towards divestment campaigns) to provide a set of recommendations for educational or institutional improvement.
