The Princeton Eating Clubs are independent, private institutions without any official ties to the University.
Each club is managed by an Alumni Graduate Board, Undergraduate Officers (who reside in the clubs), and a Club Manager. Each club has its own staff to manage dining services and club/grounds maintenance.
The presidents of all the clubs are members of the Interclub Council (ICC) and meet weekly to discuss club policies, student safety, and other topics of common concern. A representative from the Dean of Students Office attends the meeting regularly. An ICC Advisor, who is a young alumnus/a, living in the area, attends weekly meetings and provides guidance and support.
The Graduate Board Chairs of all the clubs are members of the Graduate Interclub Council (GICC) and meet several times a year to discuss club policies and initiatives. Representatives of Princeton University attend the meetings to work together with clubs on common goals and interests. A GICC Advisor, who is an alumnus/a living in the area, provides support to implement the goals of the GICC and provide a liaison to the Interclub Council (ICC) and the University.
Princeton Prospect Foundation (PPF) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose primary purpose is to collect tax deductible donations on behalf of participating Princeton University eating clubs in order to: (a) preserve, restore, and enhance the clubhouse and property in order to sustain its historic functionality and architecturally-significant value or (b) support and promote educational (or charitable) activities at such Club.
