Brown University

The Brown University College Advising Corps places recent college graduates as full-time college advisers in underserved high schools across the state of Rhode Island. The program provides intensive training to advisers so they can effectively support high school students navigate the complex processes of college admissions. In the 2017-2018 school year, 12 advisers are serving in 14 high schools.

The program is housed within the Howard R. Swearer Center for Public Service at Brown University. The Swearer Center works to connect the capacities of Brown University with those of the larger community in order to address inequalities in our society and our communities; create, share, and apply knowledge for the public good; and educate and prepare students for lives of effective action.
