Adam Beasley ’20, from Dallas, Texas, graduated from the former Woodrow Wilson School, now known as the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, and received a certificate in Urban Studies. During summer 2017, Beasley, the class of 2019 Frederick P. Hitz ’61 Scholar, served as a John C. Bogle ’51 Fellow in Civic Service and partnered with a nonprofit in Dallas to produce an awareness campaign documenting poverty and how it affects many who live in northern Texas. In summer 2019, Beasley worked with Community Access in New York City, an organization dedicated to expanding opportunities for people living with mental health concerns through affordable housing, training, and advocacy. On campus, Beasley was a mentor and the head of operations for Community House Big Sibs, a program that aims to foster relationships between local elementary school students and Princeton undergraduate mentors, with the broader goal of working to close Princeton’s minority achievement gap. He served as a peer educator, helping facilitate panel discussions around LGBTQIA topics for first-year students, and in the Pace Junior Fellows program, a service-focused faculty and student cohort. Beasley continues to work as a freelance graphic designer and was the former director of design for the Princeton Entrepreneurship Club.
For his summer internship, Adam worked at the Department of Justice in the Civil Rights Division.
