The Brown Bears compete at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics in the NCAA Division I
A member of the Ivy League, Brown has the nation’s fourth largest collegiate athletic program (and first largest program for women), with 900 athletes competing on 37 varsity sports teams — 17 for men and 20 for women.
Brown’s athletes are high-achieving students active in many areas of campus life and the community. In 2009, for example, the NCAA honored 21 Brown teams with awards for academic achievement.
