Welcome to the Women and Men of Brown web site!

Membership is open to all women and men connected with the Brown community directly or as spouses or partners, including faculty, visitors, administrators, staff, graduate students and alumni.

Our aims are

  • To build community and friendship among the women and men of Brown University
  • To assist new and visiting families to feel home at Brown and
  • To provide service to the University community.

WMB provides opportunities for newcomers and established members to meet and to engage in interest groups, listed to the left, and to participate in service projects described below.

Our Household Leasing Service (HLS) helps to fill a need of international graduate students, visiting faculty, and RUE students in our community for low cost furniture. We lease household goods to them at very low cost.

Every year an enthusiastic audience eagerly anticipates a performance by outstanding musicians at our Spring Concert. The long-standing Concert has become a celebration and a rite of spring. Proceeds from the Concert help to fund in part the Resumed Undergraduate Education (RUE) Awards that are presented to outstanding students at our Spring Meeting.

Please look us over—then contact us. Looking forward to meeting you …
