With an Eye on the World Beyond Brown, Graduate School Welcomes Most Diverse Class to Date

Among the many ambitious goals set in Brown University’s 2016 Pathways to Diversity and Inclusion action plan was the plan to double the number of graduate students from historically underrepresented groups (HUGs) by 2022. Not only would achieving that goal benefit the Brown campus — with a greater diversity of perspectives central to excellence in teaching, research and more — but it would contribute to building a pipeline of potential leaders in higher education and the public and private sectors as well. This fall, as the largest-ever cohort of students from HUGs enters the Graduate School — representing 12 percent of the incoming class — the University has taken a significant step toward meeting the action plan’s goal and, even more importantly, contributing to a more diverse world beyond Brown.
