The Office of Government Relations protects and advances the University's interests in the political, policy and regulatory areas at the federal, state, and city levels. We lead advocacy for Brown's priorities, represent the University in public, strengthen Brown as a research institution, increase support for Brown's role as an economic and cultural anchor and create and strengthen Brown's partnerships. Much of our time is spent advising Brown colleagues on issues, events, politics, policies and compliance, as well as communications with a diverse group of external constituencies. 


Who We Are

Government Relations provides expertise and counsel to connect Brown with our community and government.

Local Impact

Throughout Brown’s 250 year history, the University and the City of Providence have been integral partners.
