Strategic Plan

September 10, 2014

The Center's Strategic Planning Committee was charged with:

  • developing a vision and mission statement for the Center that places the agency and empowerment of students of color as the primary emphasis of its work;
  • devising a five-year strategic plan focused on critical reflection and informed action, leadership development, and social justice education for students of color and their allies;
  • recommending a new name for the Center to President Paxson that reflects the spirit and legacy of student activism among communities of color.

After completing their charge, the Committee submitted their final report and recommendations to the Campus Life Committee of the Brown University Corportation for feedback and to President Paxson for final approval. 

On September 10, 2014, Professor Campbell, Vice President Klawunn, and Dean Mandel announced that President Paxson accepted the Committee’s report and recommendations. President Paxson also affirmed the role and work of Brown Center for Students of Color by investing in much-needed facilities improvements. Please see below for other strategic planning documents.
