Brown v. the City of Providence

Date: 
Thursday, March 8, 2012 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: 
Smith Buonanno
Speakers: 
Ben Noble (URC) and Ben Wofford '15

The City of Providence is in dire fiscal straits - but how much can Brown be expected to help? President Ruth Simmons proposed an increase in the University's voluntary payment, but Mayor Taveras rejected it, saying it's not enough. Should Brown lose its tax-exempt status? Are the payments President Simmons proposed appropriate? Students Ben Noble (URC) and Ben Wofford (of Brown for Providence) will discuss these and other questions.
