Welcome to Committees@Brown

Committees@Brown is a resource supported by the Undergraduate Council of Students (UCS) and the Swearer Center that consolidates information about the university committees that students can get involved in at Brown. We also provide tools to learn more about shared governance at Brown.

Documented on this site are the University-level standing committees with public websites which undergraduates can get involved in. Undergraduates on these committees are appointed by the UCS however these committees are not directly a part of UCS. Graduate and faculty appointments to University committees are determined by their governance bodies, the Graduate Student Council, and the Faculty Executive Committee respectively.
