Achieving academic excellence requires a commitment to diversity. Students educated in diverse environments have been found to learn better, to deal with complexity more readily, and to emerge with a greater understanding of how to participate productively in a pluralistic society. We hope to make Brown even more of a leader in the national effort to manage and learn from the rich diversity of the nation and the world.
