Brown University

The Brown University College Advising Corps places well-trained, recent college graduates as full-time college advisers in Rhode Island’s underserved high schools. We provide the support that high school students need to navigate the complex processes of college admissions, securing financial aid, and enrolling in schools that will serve them well. In the 2016-2017 school year, 14 advisers are serving in 14 high schools. An adviser also serves at the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI), supporting high school students who enroll at the college after graduation and those seeking to successfully complete their studies at CCRI and transition to bachelor’s degree granting programs.

In Rhode Island, College Advising Corps 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.
