Brown Leadership Institute: Leadership Development for High School Students

Brown Leadership Institute students live and study on the Brown campus. This is a time-intensive and immersive program; courses meet for 5 hours each day, and students participate in workshops to sharpen leadership skills outside of class. To build community, Leadership Institute students are housed together in the same residence hall.

Homework

Students will have at least 1-3 hours of homework most days.  Computers are available for student use in the libraries so personal laptops are not required to complete assigned work. However, if a student has the ability to bring a lap top, it does provide convenience and flexibility.

We warmly encourage family and friends to attend the Closing Program for the Leadership Institute. This is a terrific opportunity for guests to learn more about the student experience and to meet faculty, student staff, and administrators.
