With over 350 peer advisors serving first-year students annually, the Meiklejohn Peer Advising Program is Brown's largest student organization. Meiklejohn Peer Advisors are paired with a faculty advising partner and work with a small group of first-year students for the duration of the academic year. Meiklejohns advise students on course selection, study habits, housing, co-curricular and research opportunities, navigating the Brown campus and Providence, social issues, and more.
Meiklejohn peer advisors offer a student perspective on the University experience while engendering an informal, open dialogue that proves indispensable to first-year students. This formative relationship is a key to helping them navigate their transition to Brown and beyond.
The Meiklejohn Peer Advising Program epitomizes Brown's commitment to student-centered and student-directed learning across all four years of study. To find out more about the program, contact [email protected] or Associate Dean of the College for Class-Year Advising, Shaunté Montgomery.
