  5. 5.    Dear Alum m,It’s my ple easure to welcome you to the Black Alumni Reunio n 2010 hoste by the edInman Page Black Alum Council (IPC). As the chair of the re mni c eunion commmittee andthe IPC secretary, I am very pleas that so many alumni made the de s sed m ecision tocome bac to Brown fo this historic reunion week ck or kend!The idea to plan a sec cond reunion of all classes (the first on was in 200 came s ne 06)about as a result of th IPC “Yes We Did” even during inau he W nt uguration weekend inWashingto D.C. in Ja on, anuary 2009. I was surprise and moved by the overw ed d whelmingpositive energy genera by having a few hund ated dred Brown a alumni come ttogether.Alumni sp panning four decades atten d nded that eve and I witn ent nessed the poower andvalue of bringing the Brown community together. Because th event in D was b B he D.C.entirely too short - the brainstorming began to plan a reunion w b weekend to br ringeveryone together agaiin.I became actively invo olved in IPC a few years ago. Althou gh I was not active for s s several years after sgraduation I felt inspire to do some n, ed ething differen for my ten-y reunion. At my five-ye reunion, I had a nt year eardifficult tim connecting with other black alumni so I thought it would be a great idea t plan a fun event me g b towhere eve eryone would see each ot d ther. I reache out to the IPC leadersh at the time and organized a ed hipparty at Rites and Rea R ason with a DJ and free fo A seem ingly minor e D ood. event has turn into an a ned annualparty durin Commenc ng cement Weeke with hund end dreds of atten ndees across a range of ag and ethniicities. gesThrough that initial exp t perience, I wa encouraged to pursue a more active role in IPC w as d where I could assistthe organization in seeeking a variety of ways to connect alum ni with each o y c other and wit current stud th dents.Over the last few yea this has been achieved by hostin face-to-fac events, lau ars, ng ce unching a na ationalwebsite, publishing a quarterly online newsletter, and growing tthe Facebook group to alm 500 mem p e k most mbers.In the futu I would lik to see mor alumni activ involved with IPC and Brown. Ther are critical areas ure, ke re vely d rewhere you support is needed such as recruitme of prospe ur h ent ective student fundraising for the Alum of ts, g mniColor Initia ative to endow the first sch w holarship for a black studen and buildin a stronger bond that sup nt, ng pportscurrent students and young alumni. I know that it is a challen to dedica time to another organiz y nge ate zation,but please consider the significance of sharing your knowledg and exper e e e y ge rtise to streng gthening IPC as analumni orgganization.I want eac of you to enjoy the reunion weekend The comm ch e d! mittee has spe several m ent months plannin the ngvarious de etails of this reunion.

  11. 11.    HISTO ORY OF BROWN UNIVERS B U SITYBrown’s cliimate of openn and coope ness eration can be traced back to its founding ov two centuries ago. verAs the thir oldest colleg in New Eng rd ge gland and the seventh oldes in America, Brown was th Baptist answ to st he werCongregationalist Yale and Harvard; Presbyterian Pr a P rinceton; and EEpiscopalian P Penn and Colu umbia. At the t time, itwas the on one that we nly elcomed studen of all religio persuasion (following th example of Roger Williams who nts ous ns he s,founded Rhode Island in 1636 on the same principle). Brown has lo since shed its Baptist affilliation, but it re ong emainsdedicated to diversity and intellectual fre t d eedom.The history of Brown tells of a univers undergoing constant cha y sity g ange. Founded in 1764 as th College of R d he RhodeIsland in Warren, Rhode Island, the school register its first stu W e s red udents in 1765 It moved in 1770 to its p 5. presentlocation on College Hill, overlooking th capital city of Providence In 1804, in r n he e. recognition of a gift from NicholasBrown, the College of Rh e hode Island wa renamed Bro University The first wom were admiitted in 1891 w the as own y. men withestablishm ment of the Women’s Colleg in Brown University. Th is marked the beginning o eighty years of a W ge e of scoordinate structure for educating wom within the University. La known as Pembroke College, the wo men e ater s omen’scollege was merged with Brown in 1971 1.Graduate study at Brow University began in 1850 when wn b 0,provision was made for the awarding of the master’s degree w t o supon succ cessful completion of one ye of academ work ear micbeyond the bachelor’s de e egree. This sysstem was disco ontinuedin 1857. The more mod T dern tradition of graduate study at sBrown beg in 1887, when the facult and Fellows agreed gan w ty sto publish in the followwing year’s catalog rules for the cawarding of both the master’s and the Ph.D. in regular mprograms of advanced wo The first master’s degree under o ork. m esthe new plan were gran nted in 1888 and the first Ph.D.s in a1889.Brown first organized a medical program in 1811. The school wa suspended by President W t T as Wayland in 18827. In1975, the first M.D. degre of the mod era were awarded to a graduating cla of 58 stude f ees dern ass ents. In 1984–8 the 85,Brown Cor rporation apprroved an eightt-year medical continuum caalled the Prog gram in Libera Medical Edu al ucation(PLME). The majority of openings for the first-year medical clas are reserve for student who receive their T r ss ed ts eundergradu degrees th uate hrough the PLM Today Bro awards ap proximately 80 M.D. degrees each year.

Co o onceived by un ndergraduate s students particiipatingin a Group Independent Study Progr ram and ratifie by the facu after muc University-w ed ulty ch wide discussio the on,curriculum harks back to a philosophy shaped by Brow President F s wn Francis Waylan in the mid-19th century. In 1850, ndhe wrote: “The various co “ ourses should be so arranged that, insofar a practicable, every student might study w he b d as whatchose, all that he chose and nothing but what he chose.” The New Curriculum, instituted in 1969, elim e, g e minateddistribution requirements and allows any course to be taken on a sattisfactory/no cr n y redit basis. In a addition, there are nopluses or minuses in the letter grading system. The school has the o m oldest undergrraduate engine eering program in the mIvy League (1847).

This c campaign cons sists of re--evaluating the existing curr e riculum and ra aising $1.4 billiion for greeater academic ambition. The money will b used for aca c e be ademic proograms, rese earch, new f facilities, biolo ogy and med dicine, stuudents who n need financial assistance, and expandin the ng facculty and stafff. In June 20 009, it was a announced that the campaign had m its goal nine met eteen months ahead of targe with et, reccord levels of giving despite the global eco onomic crises of the fiscal year. The ttotal sum raised currently stan at $1.415 b d nds billion.Beginning in 2002, Brown embarked on an ambitious program of ac n n cademic enrichm that was designed to bu on ment uildits strength and achieve new levels of excellence in research, educ hs r cation, and pub leadership. Since then, the Plan blicfor Academ Enrichmen (PAE) has guided Brown efforts to provide excelllent undergrad mic nt n’s duate, graduat and temedical ed ducation and to position the University for continued su t e uccess. Since 2002 they ha made sign ave nificantprogress tooward the goa outlined in the Plan, including increasin g the size of t faculty; est als t the tablishing need d-blindadmission for undergrad duates and strrengthening fin nancial aid for all students; providing essential resourc to r ; cesadvance scholarship, re s esearch and teeaching; and investing in th campus in he nfrastructure. T momentum and The maccomplish hments achieved during this time have been due to the hard work of many faculty, students, staf and ff,alumni voluunteers and the generous sup e pport of alumnii, parents, and other friends o the Universit of ty.It is essential that the Pllan evolve ove time if it is to er oremain relevant in an ever-changing environment g t.That relevvance demands continuous evaluation and dadjustment of their goa priorities and underlying t als, a gassumption in the face of the broa ns e ader context inwhich high education operates.
