Updates & Announcements:

As Brown University shifts to the trimester model for 2020-21, the Swearer Center is working diligently to ensure that we continue to facilitate community engagement and engaged scholarship – safely and remotely. See our Guidelines for Community Engagement Programs for general guidelines and updated information about specific programs as it becomes available.


On June 3, 2020, the Swearer Center released a Statement in Response to Systemic Racial Injustice, noting, "community engagement cannot exist without anti-racism at its core." In order to build our understanding of anti-racist work, to develop our commitment to ongoing learning and action, and to support the good work that is already happening in Providence and beyond, the Swearer Center staff has worked with students and our community partners to develop an evolving compilation of resources, Anti-Racist Community Engagement in Rhode Island. We invite you to learn, share, and continue to educate us with your edits and suggestions.
