SIPP@Brown is a two-week residential program for undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy and who are members of groups that traditionally have been underrepresented groups in the field.

The program features seminars run by Brown faculty, social and educational activities run by Brown graduate students, and a research conference featuring prominent philosophers who are themselves members of traditionally underrepresented groups.
