Princeton University is partnering with UNCF (United Negro College Fund) and historically Black colleges and universities to launch a groundbreaking program designed to enable research collaborations between Princeton faculty and their peers at HBCUs.

In May 2022, Princeton University partnered with UNCF (United Negro College Fund) and five historically Black colleges and universities to launch a groundbreaking program designed to enable research collaborations between Princeton faculty and their peers at Howard University, Jackson State University (JSU), Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU), Spelman College and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES).

Princeton University is funding these research collaborations through the Princeton Alliance for Collaborative Research and Innovation (PACRI). The program is open to projects in all disciplines, including engineering, natural sciences, humanities and social sciences. Proposals are developed jointly by a project team consisting of Princeton and partner-institution faculty members. 

The Office of Corporate Engagement and Foundation Relations is managing this program. 

PACRI is one of several initiatives by Princeton’s Office of the Dean for Research aimed at expanding a more inclusive research, innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem at Princeton and beyond.
