Welcome to Brown!

You belong here.


The Third World Transition Program welcomes new students to Brown with three days of workshops and community-building programs that center the student of color experience. By exploring systems of oppression that influence us everyday, such as racism, classism, cissexism and sexism, imperialism, ableism, and heterosexism, we hope to provide a foundation for resistance and social change. During TWTP, we call on all participants to reconsider their history and aspects of their identity and introduce students to support structures and resources available to them at Brown.

TWTP move-in will take place on Tuesday, August 27th from 8 am-4:30 pm, and the program will begin with a welcome dinner for students, families, and caregivers at 5 pm.

The program is scheduled for August 27-August 30 on the campus of Brown University.


"Is there another place where in the space of three short days you can discuss topics that most of the world feels uncomfortable addressing? TWTP will change the way you view the world around you, it will give you strength in the face of adversity, and surround you with friends who will always support you. I know it certainly did all of that for me."
