Brown's home for more than two and a half centuries, Providence is a vibrant place to live, work and study, a stimulating hub for innovation, and a city rich in cultural diversity.
With undergraduate education centered in the historic College Hill neighborhood and a growing presence in the Jewelry District — a flourishing hub for science, technology, health, medicine and entrepreneurship — Brown is deeply committed to meaningful community engagement. Brown fosters innovative community partnerships and facilitates strong relationships with neighbors, nonprofit organizations, schools, civic organizations and businesses.
Brown promotes numerous opportunities for our students, faculty and staff to work with community members in Providence to strengthen the educational, economic and social assets of our city, state and region. For students, this means access to internships and hands-on learning that blends academic work with real-world experiences. And it means building partnerships in the community through social innovation, entrepreneurship and collaborative startup ventures.
