Brown|RISD Dual Degree Joint Committee

A Joint Committee, comprised of approximately ten faculty and administrators from both Brown and RISD and two BRDD student representatives, oversees the operation of the Dual Degree Program. The Joint Committee meets regularly and committee members consider the overall student experience in the Program, identify needs and make appropriate adjustments to policies and procedures as determined, and liaise with the various administrative offices of both institutions to ensure the smooth running of the Program.
