[email protected] 2022

[email protected] ([email protected]) is a weeklong, virtual program for incoming first-year students who are interested in jump-starting their journeys as academic writers at Brown. Participants in Excellence hone their critical writing skills by engaging in interactive writing workshops and working one-on-one with peer tutors who guide them as they find their voice and develop their confidence as academic writers. Students who complete the program will also have the opportunity to receive ongoing writing support during the fall semester, including up to 4 one-on-one meetings with a peer writing tutor. 

Virtual workshops and community cohort activities will be held the week prior to general orientation, August 22-26, between 9:00 – 5:00 PM EDT. While this year’s weeklong [email protected] program will be synchronous, an asynchronous option will be made available to students who will be participating from time zones incompatible with EDT. Excellence is open to all students, but space is limited.
