The New Scientist Collective

The New Scientist Collective Program (NSC) is a STEM-mentoring program that provides peer mentoring, academic support, and professional development for students from groups traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. With a membership of 100 under-represented students in STEM, the New Scientist Peer-Advising and Leadership (NS-PAL), is the premiere mentoring program for URM undergraduates in the sciences. NSC offers scholars, who share academic interests and racial/cultural/social perspectives, activities and opportunities to develop their intellectual, interpersonal, and pre-professional skills. 

New Scientist Collective-Catalyst Program

The New Scientist Collective-Catalyst (NSC-Catalyst) summer program is a uniquely blended academic and orientation program for newly admitted students from groups traditionally underrepresented* in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). NS-Catalyst begins with an intensive three-week academic, online course, then students convene on campus for a one-week pre-orientation prior to the start of the freshmen academic year. Students learn about Brown’s science departments, campus life and resources, as well as engage in academic and leadership building activities. The experience is meant to empower students in their pursuit of science and as future dynamic members of the New Scientist Collective (NSC).
