Brown Page Content 1Student SupportOur three-tiered advising approach pairs each student with multiple advisors, so every student has the opportunity to create a community of staff and faculty actively engaged in your academic and professional success. The Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion promotes dialogue, organizes programming, and develops student support resources that foster a more welcoming community. Vetta Thompson, our associate dean for equity, diversity and inclusion, leads this work. Career Services builds connections for students to their professional careers. Attend a Career Community to meet with faculty, staff and community leaders in a particular area, or join for one of their skills-based workshops, such as resume-building and offer-negotiating. Staff also offer individualized support during their regular one-on-one advising hours. The Office of Field Education guides students through the practicum process — from identifying a fitting practicum opportunity to making the most of your learning experience — via coordinated practicum fairs and personalized advising. See a practicum overview and resources for MSW and MPH students. The Office of Financial Aid provides guidance for funding your graduate degree, including support for navigating FAFSA, federal student loans and federal work-study. See financial aid resources for MSW and MPH students. The StatLab, formed in direct response to student feedback, organizes a network of peer instructors to offer statistical and methodological support for your quantitative coursework. The Communication Lab offers workshops and small-group or one-on-one advising for written and presentation projects. Student groups connect students to leadership opportunities, programming, as well as advocacy and service opportunities. They’re a key part of our vibrant campus life. The Brown School Library provides access to a large collection of social work and public health texts, as well as a broad online database. Our Professional Development program offers workshops and trainings nearly every week, helping students, alumni and professionals build new skills and stay in touch with advances in evidence-based practice.
