DUG Elections are still happening virtually. Nominate two VA Concentrators to join Teo Obiaya for the 2020-2021 academic year. VA DUGs are elected each year to help students connect with one another, with faculty, and with alumni. VA DUGs participate in concentration fairs, give guided tours of our facilities to prospective students, organize the open studio events and assist with an annual juried student exhibition.

Academic Advising
The success of Brown’s open curriculum rests on the strength of our academic advisors, who help students define their academic pathways and shape their educational goals. Together with academic deans and peer advisors, faculty advisors help students to see their time at Brown as an intellectual exploration in and out of the classroom. 

Opportunities for advising occur almost any time faculty and students come together—in class, in the lab, during office hours, at departmental events or other extracurricular activities. Brown’s formal advising program provides the most structured forms of support for our students.

Please review ASK for the most up-to-date advisor info.

Brown Arts Initiative

"While we recognize the seriousness of our current situation, we are hopeful that together we can start to envision new ways of engaging with the arts. With that in mind, Brown Arts Initiative is excited to roll out a series of new opportunities and ways you can work with us. Students, faculty and departments can now apply to partner with BAI to receive support for arts-based projects, programs, and research that would otherwise not be possible. Think lofty. Think unusual. Think serious. Think fun. Think towards the future."

Additional information about the "Bring Art In" programs can be found online 
Creative Capital

“In times of crisis, artists are often among those most affected. In addition to health concerns, this is a challenging moment for many in our community as we deal with cancelled income and trying to make plans during uncertain times. Creative Capital has always been anchored by a rich spirit of community and mutual generosity, and we believe that continuing communication and exchange are crucial for all of us. As COVID-19 continues to spread across the United States, we have created a list of resources for artists working in all disciplines, as well as arts philanthropists, and arts professionals.

We will continue to update this list over the next few months. If you have a resource to add, please fill out
this form. You can also let us know through the form, what you would like to see.

Also check out our
list of arts events that have moved online due to the COVID-19 outbreak.”
