About our logo: The Andlinger Center recently introduced a new graphic identity system, including the logo displayed at the top of this website. The logo, created by the San Francisco design firm Propp+Guerin, reflects the interconnected roles of the Earth, sun, and water in sustainable energy systems. For all questions regarding proper use of the Andlinger Center logo in the creation and production of communications, please contact Brenda Mikeo.

The center is part of Princeton’s School of Engineering and Applied Science and collaborates with the natural sciences, the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, the School of Architecture, and beyond.
