Brown School Launches New Website

Community Engagement; Public Health; Social Work

This summer, the Brown School at Washington University launched a new website to better highlight its strengths and innovations. The site helps prospective students and faculty identify what makes our School so distinctive. The updates also help alumni, research audiences, community partners and other stakeholders connect more easily to the Brown School and our work.

With help from local design and branding firm, Almanac, the site was created with input and insight from these target audiences, as well as Brown School staff, faculty, current students and prospective students.

The result is a new site that enhances the Brown School’s digital storytelling ability for a richer, more user-friendly and responsive experience. Improved features include:

“It’s vital that we have a website that dynamically tells the story of our transdisciplinary perspective, innovative research, top-tier faculty and resources, focus on equity and impact, and unique and supportive community,” said Mary M. McKay, Neidorff Family and Centene Corporation Dean of the Brown School.

“I am pleased that our new ‘digital front door’ is a genuine reflection of the excellence of the education, spirit and commitment that lies within the Brown School, Washington University, and all who learn, work and collaborate here.”

We welcome your feedback and suggestions about the new design, which can be directed to
