Transformative Conversations

The Transformative Conversations@Brown Project strives to provide opportunities and 
spaces to engage respectfully and thoughtfully with each other across our differences. President 
Paxson framed this initiative, “...each and every year at Brown is a “lively experiment,” in which 
we bring together individuals from a diversity of backgrounds who are all dedicated to learning 
from each other. In this process of learning, we may often disagree with one another, but we also 
influence and sometimes change each other’s points of view.”

Please consider joining this critical work. The Transformative Conversations website is 
a place for gathering and sharing the content of this work. The potential impact of this project 
depends on the contributions of many individuals across the breadth of the Brown community. 
Please contact institutional_diversity@brown.edu with any questions or other inquiries about 
the Transformative Conversations@Brown Project.

Our hope is that this project will keep us in conversations that matter. Please visit this website often for updates on campus events and lectures, as well as relevant course listings.
