Why Brown? Days like this when you can picnic with your friends outside the Ratty, one of the main campus dining halls! #whybrown #brownuniversity

Sunday studying! Taken at the Watson Institute for International and Pubic Affairs, a multidisciplinary research center focusing on development, security, and governance. #brownuniversity

Why Brown? "Heavy petting" is a Brown tradition that brings dogs, rabbits, ducks, and piglets to ease student anxieties during midterm week. #brownuniversity #whybrown

We're excited to announce Brown's plan for a new, cutting edge performing arts center! The new center is envisioned as a space for music, dance, theater and multimedia arts on campus. Pictured is one of the many student dance groups, Mezcla, performing a Bomba Dance. #brownuniversity

Sun's out for the first day of classes! Welcome back!

"We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to ride from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children." Fifty years ago, MLK visited College Hill and delivered an impassioned speech on the Vietnam War and civil rights in America. While some may have called his remarks controversial and radical, Dr. King's persistence to spark dialogue on a national scale has continued to inspire students for generations to do the same.
Dr. King's leadership in civil rights activism has continued to leave a significant imprint on race relations, especially on college campuses. Just in the past year, Brown students have stood together in several movements such as #BlackLivesMatter and #SanctuaryCampus , pushing the University to pursue extensive programs and policies dedicated to bolstering the support of underrepresented groups on campus. Such recognizable efforts include the Admissions policies on DACA as domestic applicants, as well as the Brown Diversity and Inclusion Action plan. These efforts were only possible with the voices and mobilization of the student of color community, continuing MLK's dream for peace and equality in America.

Happy Martin Luther King Day from Brown Admissions and the Minority Recruitment Team. #mlkday #brownuniversity

Brown values the extraordinary talents, experiences, and diversity that veterans bring to campus. In recognition of their service, Brown commits to waiving the application fee and guaranteeing to offer a phone interview to all U.S military service members and veterans who complete an undergraduate application. #brownuniversity #veterans

Héctor Peralta '16 is a transnational second-generation immigrant and first-generation American. We talked about his experiences having grown up near the US-Mexico border and we realized the importance of highlighting silenced narratives of undocumented immigrants, both on campus and beyond. It is these lived experiences that student groups, such as the Brown Immigrant Rights Coalition, have worked to uplift and empower in the recent push for admission reform.

Students in the past year have made significant strides in pushing the University to reform its Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan, making sure that students from underrepresented backgrounds can and will have a place of support on campus. As a result of student efforts, the University has made stronger efforts in making Brown a more accessible community.
On September 13th, 2016, Brown announced in a press release that it will classify DACA-status and undocumented students as domestic applicants beginning fall 2017. This means that they will be admitted via need-blind admission policy rather than an originally need-aware basis. Meeting full demonstrated financial need for undocumented students is a significant step in the University's efforts in building diversity and inclusion outreach through the admissions process.
