Make a Difference

Introducing BrownTogether

For generations, Brown has been a leader in educational innovation, research and scholarship. We bring together a community of individuals who are passionate about serving society and making a difference, on a campus where they find freedom to create, discover, and advance knowledge. Faced with the unexpected challenges of an ever-changing world, the people of Brown develop novel solutions. Presented with barriers, we carve fresh paths and establish new partnerships.


In this spirit, we launch BrownTogether. Through this $3 billion comprehensive campaign, we will build upon Brown’s distinctive blend of excellence, agility, and collaborative inquiry to ensure that tomorrow’s Brown is prepared to confront tomorrow’s challenges. We will build our future on the legacy of our first 250 years. And we will build it together.

There’s a bold vision at the core of our campaign: the 10-year strategic plan Building on Distinction, developed by President Christina Paxson with broad input from the Brown community. Our plan animates Brown’s priorities and amplifies the University’s greatest strengths to create a path toward exceptional leadership — identifying opportunities to create new connections, new resources, and new channels of discovery across an expanding campus and an expansive curriculum.

BrownTogether — the most aspirational campaign in our history — will realize this vision. The campaign will allow Brown to move into new areas of research and education. It will enable the University to continue to attract brilliant students, recruit and retain exceptional scholars, increase diversity, support undergraduate financial aid, and enhance support for graduate and medical students. And it will fund capital and programmatic investments that will enrich campus life and strengthen education and research.

We are BrownTogether — inextricably linked from discipline to discipline, from classroom to laboratory, on campus and around the world.

We are BrownTogether. And collectively, we are stewards of the extraordinary, evolving undertaking that is Brown University.
