    IC Coordinators

    The IC Coordinators hold regular office hours at the CRC (Campus Center, Room 228) and are more than happy to guide students through the process. If students have any questions about ICs or doubts about their concentration plans in general, they can stop by office hours or email Independent_Concentrations@brown.edu with questions or to schedule a meeting with one of the coordinators.
