Job Description The Curricular Resource Center for Peer Advising (CRC) is a place where students help each other engage with Brown's open curriculum and utilize its academic resources. Founded in 1976 to support the fullest use of the New Curriculum, today the CRC's Director, student coordinators and volunteers coordinate information sessions, community-building events, and individual meetings with students for advising about independent studies and concentrations, applying for funding opportunities, issues related to the sophomore year, and more. The CRC staff works with other departments and peer advising programs to best provide a broad spectrum of advice about the wealth of curricular resources at Brown. The CRC is a part of the Office of the Dean of the College. Have you taken time off and learned a lot from the experience? Share your experiences, ideas, resources, thoughts, and challenges with other students who are thinking about taking time off. The Leavetaking Coordinator is one of twelve students who staffs the Curricular Resource Center in the Campus Center and is available during the Center’s open hours to answer questions from students who drop in seeking information about the Center’s resources or Brown’s academic resources in general. Specifically, the Leavetaking Coordinator advises students about the possibility of taking time off from school, directing them towards resources for planning their leave or to help them make the decision. The coordinator holds information sessions and meet with students individually. S/he also plans a welcome back event for returned leavetakers and maintains an online database of student experiences during time off. New in 2014-15, Brown Alliance for Leavetaking Mentors (BALM) matches students just back from a leave with a peer mentor who took time office.
