November 14, 2015

Dear Brown Community Members,

I am writing to inform the community, as the senior officer responsible for the Department of Public Safety, of an incident that took place early this morning at a campus social function, which is currently under investigation. Information circulating regarding the incident is quite understandably causing concern, and the administration is both aware of that concern and immediately seeking to determine the facts of what occurred. We take these matters very seriously.

Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey Report Released

Last year, Brown’s Sexual Assault Task Force (SATF) emphasized the importance of taking an evidence-based, data-driven approach to addressing the problem of gender-based harassment and violence at Brown. To better understand the issues on our campus, Brown joined with 27 universities to collaborate with the American Association of Universities (AAU) to sponsor a student survey, conducted last spring, designed to assess the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses and collect student views on sexual misconduct.
