Meiklejohn peer advisors provide first-year students with an informed student perspective on Brown's curricular options and student life in general. Meiklejohns are paired with faculty and staff advisors and meet with a small group of assigned advisees throughout the year. Over 300 students serve as Meiklejohns each year.
The Meiklejohn Advising Program is named after legendary Brown philosophy professor and civil libertarian Alexander Meiklejohn. The program embodies Brown's belief that student perspectives on educational opportunities are a necessary complement to faculty perspectives on learning.
