Strengthening the Foundation for Lifelong Success
Since 1969, Brown’s Open Curriculum has positioned students as the architects of their own education, encouraging the development of critical thinking, independence, and creativity. During the BrownTogether campaign, the University is building upon its distinctive brand of teaching and learning by incorporating research, internships, international travel, and community-based learning that add new depth to the academic experience. With support from the campaign:
- The BrownConnect program has enabled more than 3,200 undergraduates to explore summer internships and research projects
- The Swearer Center for Public Service has increased access to community-based learning opportunities
- The Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning has helped to create co-teaching pilots and curriculum development opportunities for students and faculty
- The Center for Career Exploration has expanded its career counseling and exploration programs
Making these experiences available to all students ensures that they will gain the insight and skills they need to fashion lives of usefulness and reputation and leave a meaningful impact on the world.
