The Princeton Internships in Civic Service
(PICS) program has offered unique and rewarding paid summer
internship opportunities for Princeton undergraduates over the last
twenty-five years. The PICS Program Director (designated as the
Class of 1969 PICS Program Director) is a part of the Pace Center
for Civic Engagement. Building on the Center's vision to make
service a central part of the Princeton student experience, the
PICS Program Director supports student engagement in service
through paid summer internships. The Program Director encourages,
supports and invites diverse perspectives in a commitment to the
Center’s vision to have Princeton University students make the
world more equitable by respecting differences and creating access
and opportunity for all people and communities to thrive.
The PICS Program Director has strategic,
administrative and operational responsibilities for the management
of the PICS program. Cultivating positive and affirming
relationships (both within the Princeton campus community and with
external stakeholders, including alumni and community partners) in
alignment of the Pace Center’s values is essential to this role.
The Program Director is responsible, either directly or through the
PICS Program Coordinator, for managing relationships with more than
600 alumni donors and volunteers, 200 community partners, 600
student applicants (ultimately 200 accepted interns), and 50
collaborators within the Princeton campus community. The Program
Director will work collaboratively across internal and external
stakeholders to uphold the highest quality internship experiences
for students while maintaining consistency, equity, and
transparency in adherence to University standards.
The PICS Program Director will report to
the Associate Director of the Center/Director of Service Focus.
