Graduate Education at Brown
Brown University has an ongoing commitment to strengthening support for and engagement with our more than 2,200 graduate students on campus. Graduate education has been central to Brown’s mission for more than a century, and we believe that the teaching and research our students undertake are integral to a graduate education.
As graduate students explore whether to unionize, our foremost priority is to ensure that students are empowered with the information they need to make the decision they feel is right for them, and that the full graduate student body participates in making an informed decision that will affect all graduate students. We continue to encourage an informed, balanced discussion with and among graduate students. We believe firmly that a determination regarding unionization is a decision that is ultimately theirs to make.
