Resources for ENVS Undergraduate Students


Peer Mentors

The peer mentorship program was established as part of the IBES Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan, and especially hopes to support students from historically underrepresented backgrounds.

The peer mentors are available to help advise and support current and prospective ES concentrators, and anyone at Brown interested in studying the environment. We will hold events throughout the semester such as roundtables and open houses, which will address topics such as navigating ES and Brown (e.g., concentration declaration, course selection, research, capstones, and study abroad). We will work with the ES DUG to plan social events for the ES program and Brown's environmental community. And we aim to be a resource for students facing any difficulties-- academic challenges, instances of bias or harassment, or anything else.

We're here for you, and we're always happy to meet one-on-one! If there's anything we can help with, or if you'd just like to chat, send us an email and we'll find a time that works for you.

Hi! My name is Danilo, and I’m a junior from New York City pursuing an Sc.B. in the Sustainability in Development track. Outside of the ES community, I am the President of the Latin American Students Organization and am on Brown's rugby team. I’ve switched both my concentration and track, so if you’re contemplating a decision regarding Environmental Science, I’d be happy to give you some advice. Additionally, if you have broader questions please feel free to shoot me an email and we can talk it out.  

Hola! I am Jimena and I am an international student from Mexico concentrating in Environmental Science (Sustainability and Development). I am particularly interested in the economics and policy areas of environmental science. During my time at Brown I have conducted climate change research and interned abroad in Indonesia. If you have any questions or just want to talk send me an email!
