The Swearer Center is a hub of community, scholarship, and action at Brown University, connecting faculty, students, and staff with people and organizations across Rhode Island and around the globe to co-create knowledge and positive social change.

This directory, created by the Swearer Center in collaboration with Researchers@Brown, includes the profiles of faculty teaching CBLR-designated courses as well as those whose research areas include relevant terms (e.g., engaged scholarship, community engagement).

We recognize that not all faculty included here have a direct affiliation with the Swearer Center and that not all community-engaged faculty on campus are represented within these parameters. With any questions or comments about this page, please email julie_plaut@brown.edu.
