Brown home » Life on Campus

The academic mission and program of the University have an important complement in the broad educational framework that students find outside of the classroom (leadership and service opportunities; exploration of diversity, and cultural and spiritual traditions; performance and artistic interests and talents; athletic skill and excellence at a number of levels; political and social action on- and off-campus; work experiences; and so forth).

Brown believes that a broad and varied on-campus, residential experience affords the best opportunity to introduce undergraduate students to these principles and values. The residential context at Brown then intentionally encompasses every aspect of students' experience during their years at the University: the classroom, the computer cluster, the residence hall, the library, the dining hall, the athletic field, the concert hall, the range of activities on- and off-campus, the resources and the spaces are all understood as a rich and complex educational whole.
