Updates & Announcements:
Elevating community engagement: New Vice President

The President’s office announced news that we are so excited to share! Effective  Sept. 1, 2022, our Executive Director, Mary Jo Callan, will be promoted to serve as Brown’s Inaugural Vice President for Community Engagement and Stark Family Executive Director of the Howard R. Swearer Center for Public Service. This change stems from an institutional priority to elevate community engagement at Brown, including moving the Swearer Center’s reporting to the President’s Office. This will empower the Center to further strengthen our ties to the Providence community and leverage the university’s research, education, and partnerships in service to community-identified priorities. You can learn more about this announcement and its impact on the Swearer Center and Brown’s community engagement efforts in this article. We look forward to keeping you updated on our plans for the coming year.
