The Science Center's mentoring programs offer resources and opportunitites to assist undergraduate students in acclimating to life as a Brown STEM student. Currently, the Center supports two mentoring programs:
The New Scientist Program (NSP) is a STEM-mentoring program that provides academic support, mentoring and professional development for students from groups traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. With a membership of 100 students of color, the NSP Peer-Advising and Leadership (NSP-PAL), is the premiere mentoring program for URM undergraduates in the sciences. NSP offers scholars, who share academic interests and racial/cultural/social perspectives, activities and opportunities to develop their intellectual, interpersonal, and pre-professional skills. For more information about the program visit NSP.
Women in Science and Engineering Program (WiSE) was established to support women at the undergraduate level who choose to study in the sciences. The program goal is to inform and enable students to face and overcome challenges women commonly encounter in science environments, both academia and the workplace. With a membership of more than 700 students and faculty from all fields of science at Brown, WiSE provides a support network that includes outreach to first-year students, mentoring, faculty lunch-lectures and social events.
