One of the things that we love about Brown is the way it continuously evolves to meet the challenges of the current moment. Students, faculty, staff, the administration, and the broader community are united behind a growth mindset; how can we all contribute to increasing Brown’s impact on today’s most pressing issues and preparing our students to address the concerns of tomorrow?
Over the last six years, the BrownTogether campaign has fueled this type of growth in areas where the University can lead the way forward, including brain science, economics and inequality, entrepreneurship, international affairs, and engineering. But, true to form, this community is not content with just reaching the $3 billion campaign milestone; we see so many more opportunities for partnership, transformation, and leadership.
Based on our commitment to opening new channels of discovery and guided by the University’s core values, President Christina H. Paxson has announced an extension of the campaign that will build upon all we have accomplished thus far. The extension will prioritize areas of continuing importance to Brown and the world, such as public health, biomedical research, the role of the creative arts and the humanities in understanding the human experience, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. It will also redouble our efforts to elevate the student experience through enhanced financial aid programs, stronger athletics and recreation programs, and the establishment of a best-in-class career exploration and preparation center.
The level to which we are raising our sights would not be possible without the impressive generosity and involvement of Brown’s alumni, parents, donors, and friends. You support our vision of sustained excellence, and your ongoing engagement fuels continual improvement for the benefit of the next generation. We are aiming higher than ever before, and together we can lift Brown to remarkable heights.
