NOTE: During the pandemic there are limitations on clinical, service, research and other activities depending on the overall and local public health situation. This is a challenge shared by students throughout the country. You can engage in activities remotely if in-person activities aren't available or if the mode of involvement changes. 

As of summer 2021, Brown students are permitted to engage in activities on and off campus in person. Please follow the details on the Healthy Brown website and communication you receive from University offices about guidelines for travel and activities- these may evolve.
