Residential Peer Leader (RPL) 2015-2016 Recruitment & Selection Process


Thank you for your interest in a position within the Residential Peer Leader (RPL) program for the 2015-2016 academic year! 


Serving as an RPL is a privilege that enriches and enhances the overall Brown undergraduate experience for a select group of students each year. RPLs receive specialized training in: advising and counseling, crisis management, diversity and personal identity issues, programming, and event planning among other areas. Our program’s team approach allows for students to build collaboration, communication, decision-making and problem-solving skills that can prove valuable in other settings here at Brown and beyond.


Students who wish to be selected to become RPLs must be rising sophomores, juniors or seniors in good academic and judicial standing. RPLs are REQUIRED to return to campus early in both Fall and Spring semesters in order to complete staff training. More details can be found in the RPL Job Description.
