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 2019-2020 school year, 10 advisers are serving in 13 high schools.

The program is housed within the Howard R. Swearer Center for Public Service at Brown University. The Swearer Center works to connect students, faculty and community partners through community engagement, engaged scholarship and social innovation. The Swearer Center collaborates across their field through the College and University Engagement Initiative, which includes the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification and the National Inventory of Institutional Infrastructure for Community Engagement (NI3CE).
