What are the vaccine requirements?

Brown is requiring COVID-19 vaccines and boosters for all students who will be on campus or engage in any level of in-person instruction, whether in the U.S. or abroad. Medical and religious exemptions from vaccination will be granted to students, and reasonable accommodations will be provided (as determined by applicable law). Failure to upload vaccine documentation or receive exemption approval may result in disciplinary action. Up-to-date information is outlined on the Healthy Brown website.

How big are social gatherings allowed to be before they are considered violations?

Students are expected to follow the policies established by the University and the State of Rhode Island, whichever is more restrictive, regarding attending or hosting social gatherings especially in terms of the number of people allowed. The most up-to-date information about these policies can be found on the Healthy Brown website. 

If I am assigned to an Educational Conversation or a Community Impact Circle, will that be part of my record?

Educational Conversations and Community Impact Circles are considered non-disciplinary measures. As such, they will be part of the record the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards keeps, but we would not report this information to internal (affiliated with Brown University)  or external (not affiliated with Brown University) entities the way we would report the outcomes of disciplinary processes.
