Our Mission

Brown University brings to campus independent and creative students who expand their intellectual endeavors beyond the classroom. The division of Campus Life and Student Services establishes and nurtures a vibrant residential environment that enables students to pursue their academic and extra-curricular interests to the fullest.

We teach, advise, counsel, support, coach, guide and mentor. Our work advances students' abilities to thrive as contributing members of the Brown community; to bring a diversity of experiences, beliefs and identities to bear in their studies and lives; to promote civil discourse; and to develop skills of leadership, cooperation, problem-solving, management of difficult situations, completion of commitments, and group function toward a common goal.
