Throughout the years, the PSTC has been a key contributor to the university-college model that is at the heart of Brown University's liberal arts education. As the preeminent campus center conducting quantitative social science research, we have played an essential role in training students at all levels in data fluency and data analysis in and outside of the classroom.

Brown University's undergraduates are frequently brought into PSTC faculty empirical projects, thus enriching the projects and providing invaluable training and exposure to young scholars. The Center's partnership with the Leadership Alliance also brings undergraduates from other schools to the PSTC for the summer, where they receive mentoring along with theoretical knowledge and practical research training.
