Current events have made one thing abundantly clear: people, and young people in particular, are advocating for change. Through the Brown Leadership Institute—no matter your current level of engagement—you’ll increase your ability and effectiveness in advancing social justice.
In this four-week online program, you’ll meet students from all over the world who are passionate about a wide variety of issues, including topics such as human rights, educational access and economic justice. You’ll spend your days in class delving into compelling topics in a course of your choosing. Conversations will continue over Zoom, in small group virtual sessions or student-lead discussion threads, as you grapple with complex problems and brainstorm possible solutions together. Along the way, you’ll practice a collaborative model of leadership in and out of class, as you also hone your skills in active listening, public speaking, problem-solving, conflict resolution and teamwork. Building on all of this new knowledge, you’ll develop an action plan you can take home and apply in your community.
