The Curricular Resource Center for Peer Advising (CRC) is a place where students help each other engage with Brown's open curriculum and effectively utilize its academic resources.

Founded in 1976 to support the fullest use of the New Curriculum, today the CRC's Director, students coordinators and volunteers coordinate information sessions, community-building events, and individual meetings with students for advising about independent studies and concentrations, applying for funding opportunities, taking time off from college, issues related to the sophomore year and more.

The CRC staffers collaborate with various groups, centers and deans to provide the best possible advice about the wealth of academic resources at Brown and beyond. The CRC is part of the Office of the Dean of the College.
