    Because of a deep commitment to our community, Brown has not laid off or furloughed any regular Brown employees due to COVID-19-related budget cuts. To help preserve jobs, Brown will temporarily reduce contributions to its retirement plans. As of Nov. 1, Brown will reduce its contribution to most employee plans to 2% for a planned period of 12 months. Retirement plans that are collectively bargained (i.e. subject to union contracts) will not be impacted at this time.
