- Social Innovation Fellowship
$ocial Classmates ($C) is a semester-long, not-for-credit workshop that aims to create a safe space in which Brown students may constructively explore social class. The workshop aims to de-stigmatize and demystify social class through inviting students to question their social class, the privileges and disadvantages of their class, and issues of class and classism, through engagement with students of different classes. Despite the salience of the subject, $C does not have a prominent campus presence thereby limiting the reach of its transformative power. My project is threefold: to research student experience of social class at Brown, to transform $C to meet the needs found in the research, and to begin a greater conversation around social class at Brown through expanded programming.
