Check out a behind-the-scenes look at how students in Brown STEAM answered the design challenge presented by Charlie Giancarlo ’79, who wanted to fund a piece of durable, interactive art that made a statement about the rigor and cross-disciplinarity of engineering at the University while also being a means of telling the time. #BrownUniversity #BrownEngineering

  • Jennifer Mastrianni '19 was 16 when she became the world’s youngest Accredited Green Roof Professional. Her interest in the environment led her to embark on a semester-long Texas wilderness expedition during her sophomore year at Brown. “There were fourteen of us in the middle of nowhere, and we didn’t see another person the entire time."

    During this time, Mastrianni was inspired to combine her love of sustainability with business, putting the pieces together in Professor Emeritus Barrett Hazeltine’s Management of Nonprofit and Industrial Organizations course. “In my environmental science classes, I was frustrated by the lack of action by the government. I saw a huge focus on environmentalism in government policies but less focus on urging companies themselves to instigate industry-wide change.”

    Mastrianni, a business economics concentrator, went on to serve as head teaching assistant for Appropriate Technology for two years, taking on administrative responsibilities and helping students with notes and homework. Last summer, Mastrianni interned with the supplier diversity and responsible sourcing group within global procurement at Bank of America and was offered a job there upon graduation. This summer, she’ll head to Bank of America’s Charlotte, North Carolina, headquarters to help the bank on such projects as reducing plastic in its supply chain and deciphering ways to identify if potential contractors could have connections to human trafficking.

  • We’re pleased to welcome outstanding molecular life scientists from historically underrepresented groups to the first Nabrit Conference for Early Career Scholars here on campus.

    The conference is named for Samuel Milton Nabrit, Brown’s first African-American Ph.D. recipient and first African-American trustee. After earning his doctorate from Brown in 1932, Nabrit continued his trailblazing academic career, becoming president of Texas Southern University in 1955 and serving in a number of national roles, including membership on the National Science board and Atomic Energy Commission. Unveiled in 1999, his portrait joins those of other historical Brown luminaries in Sayles Hall.

  • As we honor all who have served this #MemorialDay, we remember the many Brunonians — including Army Major Sullivan Ballou 1852 — who gave their lives in service to our country. Ballou, who is buried in Providence's Swan Point Cemetery, is most well known for the moving letter he wrote to his wife, Sarah, on the eve of the Battle of Bull Run. Featured in Ken Burns's Emmy-winning civil war documentary miniseries, the letter was discovered in Ballou's personal effects after his death on the Bull Run battlefield.

    An excerpt from the letter: “If it is necessary that I should fall on the battle-field for any country, I am ready. I have no misgivings about, or lack of confidence in, the cause in which I am engaged, and my courage does not halt or falter. I know how strongly American civilization now leans upon the triumph of government, and how great a debt we owe to those who went before us through the blood and suffering of the Revolution, and I am willing, perfectly willing to lay down all my joys in this life to help maintain this government, and to pay that debt.”

    To all who have served, thank you.

  • "You’re Brunonians — you rise to challenges. And you’re more than capable of facing hard truths and then doing the hard work of making change… Every single one of you, no matter where you’re headed next, has a role to play. And I know you will. We need you to do this.

    “As you depart, I encourage you to dig deep and channel your inner first-year self… Never lose the optimism; the intellectual, emotional and social openness; the eagerness to learn; and the commitment to having an impact on the world. These virtues... will lead you to lives of meaning and consequence in a changing world.” –Brown President Christina Paxson #Brown2019 🎉🎓🐻

  • The Commencement Procession, one of Brown's greatest and oldest traditions, brings together the entire Brown community in a festive and joyous celebration. The procession steps off through Faunce Arch promptly at 9:45 am and is led by the chief marshal, a member of the 50th reunion class.

    All graduating students march through the Van Wickle Gates, which swing open twice a year: inward to admit incoming students during Convocation and outward to discharge the new graduates during Commencement.

    Alumni who have returned for Reunion march with their classes. Once the last person is through the Van Wickle Gates, the procession inverts and continues down College Street, with each participant applauding the others. The procession is made up of approximately 6,000 participants that line the route.
