Structures and the Urban Environment

2019-07-03T22:56:49+05:00

One of the most classic courses at Princeton University, CEE262, Structures in the Urban Environment (known as “Bridges”) was founded by Professor David Billington (1927-2018) in 1974.  The course argues that the best designed structures (bridges, buildings, and vaults) are a work of art – structural art – the art of the structural engineer.  The course integrates humanities with engineering through studies of cultures, people, and art as reflected in works of structural engineering.

This collection of interviews documents the use of Spanish in Princeton University, giving more visibility to our own Spanish-speaking community. Furthermore, creating a repository of interviews and casual conversations provides a more authentic perspective of a language that has an important presence on our campus, and it becomes a venue for the voices and experiences of those who live, study, and work in Princeton.

Inclusive Pedagogy Symposium

2018-06-18T21:19:57+05:00

The Inclusive Pedagogy Symposium sought to answer two important questions: How do educators ensure they are providing an inclusive learning environment for all students?  How can the learner’s understanding of inclusive learning and teaching enhance the learning experience of all students?  To answer these questions, participants were immersed in literature of inclusive pedagogy, actively engaged with methods described, and reflected on their own experiences as learners and peer educators.
