Brown Alumni Magazine

Founded in June 1900 as the Brown Alumni Monthly "to bring the university and its graduates into closer touch and sympathy," the Brown Alumni Magazine continues to work toward this goal of generating informed good will about Brown University and its graduates. The magazine's fundamental mission is to continue Brown's educational work by reporting about the workings of the University and the ideas and accomplishments of its alumni, and faculty. It publishes six times a year and has over 94,000 readers.

Since 2000, the BAM has earned more than twenty national awards for writing and design, including the Robert Sibley Magazine of the Year award, which is given annually to the country's best alumni magazine as selected by the editors of Newsweek. Key to the BAM's success is its century-old tradition of editorial integrity and independence. The BAM has long been known for its compellingly written and designed stories characterized by credible reporting, diverse and in-depth writing, and the free exchange of information, ideas, and opinions.
