Nature: Each official invited to participate in this raid-career program will be assisted in planning for himself a year's educational experience that will meet his needs for the career he sees ahead. The program will be marked. by a notable absence of academic paraphernalia. There is to be no counting of credits and semester hours In planning that educational experience he will, in the light of his inter- ests and qualifications.. be free to choose: (1) The graduate seminars offer- ed by the several departments of Princeton University (2) Woodrow Wilson School seminars that help the mid-career man to evaluate the experience he has had and to relate his own function to the whole government and to society and. the economy; (3) one or more policy conferences in which he will, with schol- ars from the Princeton faculty and. experienced. adrainistrators from Federal, state, and local governments engage in the discussion and analysis of current and emerging problems of public policy; (4) undergraduate courses and graduuatf seminars in public affairs to fill in gaps in earlier training or to satisfy current interests; (5) a research project on a problem of public moment that draws on consultations with members of the faculty and with visiting public executives at the School and aims to distill meaning out of the official's experiences, The Princeton Fellow will participate in seminars and in a wide variety of day-to-day contacts with officials from various agencies of the Federal government, with military and foreign service officers, with public officials from other lands; and. with outstandingly qualified. recent college graduates who look forward to a career in public service.
