Council for International Teaching & Research

The Council for International Teaching and Research (CITR) seeks to enhance the University’s international programs and to increase its scholarly strength in the study of key regions and cultures for the benefit of all components of the Princeton community.

Created in 2008 in response to the President’s Advisory Committee on Internationalization, the Council advises the University senior  administration on the development of strategic and research resources and partnerships such as Global Collaborative Networks, Global Scholars, Strategic Partnerships, Research Partnerships and various other international initiatives. Through networks, connections and activities the Council promotes, Princeton’s international engagements can evolve and adapt to the ever-shifting priorities and advances in teaching and research.
