Brown alumni are making a global impact.

One of the things that makes the reputation of the Brown School so strong is its network of passionate alumni around the world. We love keeping in touch with our graduates, not only to learn about the vital work they are doing, but also to ensure we are helping them to reach their changing goals and maximize their impact. Some touchpoints available to our graduates include:

Alumni Academy: Help current Brown students chart their career paths. Volunteer with Career Services, and you’ll receive opportunities to examine your own career, complete valuable  trainings, and network with other alums in the area and beyond.

Make a Gift: Last year, over 2,000 alumni and friends contributed to the Brown School’s Annual Fund. Contributions support student scholarships, innovative programs, faculty research, and our ability to respond where the need is greatest.
