About Us

The Office of Public Affairs (OPA) provides the principal link between Princeton University and the State of New Jersey on state laws and regulations that affect the management of the University and the quality of life of our students and faculty. The Office of Public Affairs advocates on behalf of the University community on a broad range of issues, from higher education administration to land use and public safety. We work closely with elected and appointed officials, and participate in statewide educational, research and business organizations in order to provide informed, strategic advice internally and ensure the goals of the University are considered at the highest levels of government.
