Congratulations to Prudence Carter, who has been selected for the Brown 2026 steering committee, a faculty-led initiative created in recognition of the upcoming 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States. The committee will consider how the University can best contribute to scholarship, teaching, and programming on the history and legacies of the American Revolution, as well as the role of research universities in a democracy.
Congratulations to Emily Rauscher for being a recipient of a Spencer Foundation Grant (“Hidden Money: School-Supporting Non-Profit Funds and Rising Inequality”). This grant represents a large extension of her recent Sage Foundation Grant that will allow her to also examine qualitative data to learn how unequal non-profit funds are, how those funds matter, and how much they contribute to rising inequality of student outcomes.
