MAPS Panels

About MAPS Panels

MAPS mentors organize and host panels throughout the year that are open to all students. Panel topics include cultivating relationships with professors, pursuing research, and exploring study away opportunities. Depending on the topic, professors, students, deans, or other guests will be invited to sit on the panel and answer questions from the moderator and audience. 

MAPS mentees are required to attend at least two panels during the year. MAPS Panels are open for any member of the Brown community to attend.
