Brown's Meiklejohn Advising Program educates peer academic advisors who, in partnership with a faculty or staff advisor, provide academic advice and counseling primarily to first-year students.
Meiklejohn peer advisors provide a student perspective on a Brown education, a perspective derived from their own experience and coupled with knowledge gained from their training. They recognize the need to be responsive to each advisee's particular interests and desires, and understand that education is a process of intellectual growth interrelated with the development of moral character.
The Meiklejohn Peer Advising Program epitomizes Brown's commitment to student-centered and student-directed learning across the four years of study. To find out more about the program, contact Meiklejohn@brown.edu or Dean Yolanda Rome.
