Brown University President Christina Paxson and Provost Richard M. Locke published an open letter to the Brown community via the Brown Daily Herald student newspaper Sunday, Jan. 29. In it, they stated: "During this moment of great political uncertainty in our country, including the recent signing of various executive orders and possible policy changes ahead affecting education and research, we must be vigilant and deliberate in upholding our core values as a university." In a separate community letter, Provost Locke described steps Brown is taking in the wake of the recent executive order on immigration and highlighted resources available to community members. Dean Andrew G. Campbell, in a letter to students, states the Graduate School's commitment to admitting the strongest applicants without regard to citizenship. A subsequent letter reaffirms Brown's commitment to doctoral funding. Get more information at a dedicated website.
