Every day on Brown’s campus, some of the sharpest minds from around the globe come together to collaborate, innovate, and push the boundaries of understanding. In classrooms, laboratories, libraries, and dorm rooms, they are working through intractable problems and building the foundation for a better world.
The growing strength of this rich learning environment is made possible by your support of BrownTogether campaign priorities. We are grateful that you have united behind one of our most important goals: to invest in the people that make Brown such a special place and whose work is having broad societal impact.
There are many ways to ensure that our brilliant scholars can take advantage of vital opportunities to learn from both experts and peers, develop novel ideas, express their creativity, and devise new approaches and solutions to the defining issues of our time. And you have answered the call by providing thoughtful and generous support for these essential aspects of the University’s mission.
Throughout the BrownTogether campaign, we have placed emphasis on faculty support and expansion, and we are thrilled to announce that donors like you have helped us eclipse our goal of endowing 123 faculty chairs. In this newsletter, we illustrate how these positions not only enrich teaching and mentorship, but also drive collaborative research in brain science, economics, climate change, public health, the creative arts, and more.
Your support of financial aid for both domestic and international undergraduates and student veterans continues to ensure that Brown can bring the very best students from all socioeconomic backgrounds to campus every year. And, your contributions to campus life initiatives have expanded assistance for them as they chart their individual courses to personal and professional success. In this and many other ways, you are opening doors for them to pursue academic excellence and leadership in a variety of forms.
We hope that you enjoy reading about the impact of your support and how it is fueling pivotal research, student achievement, and the fulfillment of Brown’s mission to be of service to the world.
