Lifelong Learning & Travel

Keep the intellectual discourse going long after you’ve passed through the Van Wickle Gates.

Brown was here for you when your education began, and it’s here for you still.

Benefit from the expertise of your Brown community to learn about a variety of subjects ranging from climate change to brain science, public health to engineering. Dive into critical thinking on issues facing our society today. And do it how you prefer: locally, globally, or virtually.

Whether you want to advance your understanding on a topic, learn a new language, access library resources and online journals, plan the trip of a lifetime with other Brunonians, or more, you can continue to chart your course with Brown.
