Millennial Lecture Series

The Class of 2000 debuted the Millennial Lectures at Reunions in 2006, with the intent of bringing discussion of important, current issues to the events calendar.  The Series was awarded the Alumni Council Committee on Reunions Award for Innovation in 2011 and the Committee on Academic Programs for Alumni Award for Excellence in Alumni Education in 2018.

Lectures normally take place the Saturday morning of Reunions weekend.  Lectures are open to all and often feature Princeton faculty or other notable speakers.

Congratulations, Class of 2000!
The Class of 2000 has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the Alumni Council Committee on Academic Programs for Alumni (CAPA) Award for Excellence in Alumni Education. Established in 2003, this award is presented annually by CAPA to an individual or group who has made an outstanding contribution to alumni education at Princeton, with a special emphasis placed on service over a significant period of time. During the deliberation process, the committee was impressed by the longevity, scope, and impact of the Millennial Lecture Series. Since 2006 the Class of 2000 Millennial Lecture Series has addressed a broad range of current issues through notable speakers who have engaged and informed over 1,100 alumni and guests during Reunions.
