Improving access to affordable housing is a critical challenge around the country and across the globe. It's also an urgent concern just across Nassau Street from the University campus, in the municipality of Princeton.

That made it a perfect fit for the inaugural Tiger Challenge, a program designed to help Princeton students tackle complex, real-world problems by providing support and nurturing their curiosity, creativity, compassion and courage.

A team of four undergraduates spent part of the summer learning about affordable housing in Princeton through research and conversations with residents, municipal officials, affordable-housing experts and Tiger Challenge mentors.
