BrownThink is a student-founded and student-run, Brown University, undergraduate public policy competition that provides students who are not necessarily Public Policy concentrators with a venue to collaborate and think about how to handle issues facing America. The event is a conference and friendly competition between teams of students who have to devise a practical and creative policy reform to a specific policy problem. The competition is open to students of all concentrations and age levels. This year, BrownThink's topic is cyber security and diplomatic security. Students will devise a security reform detailing processes for balancing diplomatic risk and mission requirements. The team with the most cohesive proposal, as determined by Brown University MPA students, graduate students, and a guest judge, receives a prize, a certificate, and their proposal submitted to national organizations and Rhode Island legislators.
