Peer Advisors

BRDD Peer Advisors

Dual Degree Peer Advisors primarily support first, second, and third-year Dual Degree students by offering advice and connecting them with campus resources. Peer Advisors also advocate the student voice to campus administrators, represent the Program on our campuses, and organize community events for all Dual Degree students across the academic years. Incoming first-year Dual Degree students are assigned a Peer Advising Family led by Peer Advisors in their second and third year of study and a Peer Mentor in their third or fourth year of study. Second-year Dual Degree students select a Peer Advisor for second-year students. Third-year Dual Degree students are advised by a team of Peer Advisors in their fourth or fifth year of study.

BRDD Minority Peer Advisor

The BRDD Minority Peer Advisor helps cultivate an environment of inclusivity and equality. The BRDD Minority Peer Advisor helps BRDD students of color and other minoritized identities including those of ability, class, gender, sexuality, first generation and/or international student status, and other social identities, to navigate the complex academic and social environments of Brown, RISD, and the Brown|RISD Dual Degree Program.
