Educational Leadership

Brown is deeply committed to providing outstanding education to undergraduate, graduate, and medical students and has long held a place as a leader in educational innovation.

The Brown Curriculum prepares undergraduates for productive lives by cultivating critical thinking, independence, and creativity through exposure to a rigorous curriculum in the liberal arts and sciences. Brown graduate and medical students are provided with the courses, mentoring, and opportunities for research, teaching, and professional development critical to their success.

In the coming decade, we will strengthen our position as a leader in education. We will continue to emphasize close interactions between students and faculty in an environment that inspires students to carve their own intellectual and creative paths. In addition, we will enhance our capacity in the creative use of online technologies to increase the quality of education, strengthen the curriculum in key areas, and expand opportunities for Brown students to connect their academic experiences to the world outside of Brown. We will further enhance career counseling and related services to help all our students prepare for a productive and fulfilling life after Brown. We will create innovative new programs for master’s, medical, and doctoral students that build on Brown’s strengths and expand the professional training and mentoring that is invaluable for these advanced students.
