As Assistant Director of Undergraduate Research, Dr. Caitlin Larracey contributes to campus conversations focused on developing and strengthening experiential learning opportunities involving Princeton undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty. Caitlin is especially committed to advancing Princeton’s equity and inclusivity initiatives as they relate to accessing undergraduate research experiences. Prior to joining Princeton, she developed her expertise in experiential learning through her postdoctoral appointment in program design and student mentoring at Johns Hopkins University and by working with undergraduate researchers in her writing studies dissertation at the University of Delaware. Before all that, though, she attended Bridgewater State University in her home state of MA, where getting involved in undergraduate research as a first-gen college student was a key way to accelerate her learning around what academia is. Her dissertation focused on historically excluded students' writing and learning experiences on the two-year branch campus of a four-year research university. Some fun facts: Caitlin finally moved from only listening to actual play D&D podcasts to actually playing D&D herself during the first year of the pandemic, she loves playing video games but doesn't super often because the timing has to be just right, if their lease allowed she and her wife would own at least five cats, she can occasionally be found listening to the same song on repeat for a few hours while working (wearing headphones, of course!), and she's very excited to get to know Princeton students better.
