The Department of Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences recruits under-represented minorities and under-privileged students to work in the lab, offers summer research opportunities for minority students through the BP-ENDURE and Leadership Alliance programs at Brown, and makes opportunities available for high school students and undergraduates at primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs). In partnership with RISD, we educate STEM teachers about new techniques and technological advances and provide outreach to elementary schools and foster care facilities, allowing them to participate in educational programs about the basic principles of brain development and functioning.

More than 500 Brown University students participate in Community Corps, leading after-school enrichment programs, connecting health resources to patients, working with adult learners, providing one-on-one tutoring, assisting classroom teachers, supporting and advocating for people who are homeless, and and engaging in other ways. Strong, long-term relationships between the Swearer Center, Brown University students, and community partner organizations are an essential component of this program.

LET’S GET READY’S program provides students with six years of support through the college admissions and enrollment process, and then along the road to college graduation. Throughout the process, we rely on highly trained and highly effective college undergraduates who mentor younger students by becoming Coaches. These Let’s Get Ready near-peer Coaches provide students with timely, relevant and personalized resources, share their own college experiences to create a sense of belonging, and support students as they identify their strengths and build self-efficacy skills.

Pathways is a student mentorship program that links local high school students in Rhode Island with professional student mentors from the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and our partner schools in an effort to enrich, inspire, and educate. Local students undertake curriculum and work on a science project with AMS medical students. Mentors are paired with high school students to provide individualized guidance about navigating the transition from high school to college and beyond. During monthly sessions, students hear case studies presented by local physicians, participate in hands-on medical simulations, experience the human anatomy lab, and create a research presentation of their own.

Project GOAL (Greater Opportunity for Athletes to Learn) inspires academic achievement through the passion and power of soccer. Through this coeducational after-school initiative, Rhode Island middle school youth receive the academic enrichment necessary to achieve and exceed grade level proficiency while building a foundation of social responsibility, teamwork and collaboration in the classroom and on the field. Our goals are to foster opportunity and expose children and families to positive models of healthy lifestyles by providing a nurturing after-school environment, academic tutoring, health/nutrition information, exercise, and safe facilities.

The Science Cartoons (SciToons) program was developed to engage STEM and non-STEM students and faculty in the creation of science animation for YouTube. The SciToons model is a new approach for communicating scientific research and concepts to a broad audience via storytelling, animation, high-quality multimedia and art. SciToons are interdisciplinary, and leverage the strength of Brown researchers and undergraduates for the stories and animations. SciToons videos are an excellent resource for high school students, teachers and the general public who are interested in learning about a range of scientific topics. The SciToons initiative was created in 2011 by Dr. Oludurotimi Adetunji, Associate Dean of the College, who leads the program.
