For more than two and a half centuries, Brown has been deeply connected to the diverse and vibrant City of Providence — as a neighbor, employer and institution dedicated to a mission of education, research and service.
At the heart of the relationship between the University and the people and organizations in the city and state is a commitment to productive engagement and partnership. In everything from improving medical care and public health, to community engagement activities, support for schools and our role in fueling the regional economy, we are deeply committed to investing in the success of our local community.
This commitment is brought to life each and every day by the work of faculty, staff, administrators, students and alumni across a wide range of Brown schools, departments, offices, centers, programs and initiatives. Brown is building innovative community partnerships and sustaining strong relationships with neighbors, nonprofit organizations, schools, civic organizations and businesses, dedicated to making a positive impact.
