Help us grow the Sheridan Center Conversation Tree!

Prompted by our interest in sustaining conversations started in the Fall Semester around the Sheridan Center's annual theme of Communication, and inspired in particular by a campus-wide performance by the University of Michigan's CRLT Players, we've placed a Conversation Tree in the main entrance of the Center. The tree presents handwritten tags, initially collected from the audience at the CRLT Players' performance, that reflect on a range of issues and concerns that affect us as individuals and as members of the wider Brown community.These issues include student and faculty diversity, staff experiences, work-life balance, and educational climate. We invite all members of the Brown community to stop by the Center, to reflect on these tags, and to contribute their own tags to this ongoing conversation about topics that matter at Brown.
