Life on Campus
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.
