"Part of the reason I came to the Brown School is that it has a rich
tradition of doing very rigorous work and being community-based and engaged. I knew from my conversations with  Dean Edward F. Lawlor, and others here, that the university had a commitment to seeing broader societal issues addressed and that the university has a potentially substantial role to play in doing that."
