For the past three years, Princeton University has been home to Catharine Bellinger and Alexis Morin, and their non-profit organization Students for Education Reform. Rather than returning for their senior year, Bellinger and Morin decided to take on running SFER full-time.
The pair formed Students for Education Reform during their sophomore year. While in high school, Bellinger worked at a KIPP charter school in her hometown of Washington D.C. Working there sparked her interest in education reform. When she started at Princeton, Bellinger looked for a club devoted to education reform, but with no luck.
