Brown University Unveils $100M Plan To Boost Diversity Awareness
The Rhode Island Ivy League school, Brown University has unveiled a $100 million plan aimed at boosting diversity over the next 10 years which includes a plan to double the number of faculty members, minority populations and other underrepresented groups.
The university’s president Christina Paxton commented on the plan and summarized the 19 page document outlining the plan:
“Creating a just and inclusive campus community is key to Brown’s ambitions as a university. Legacies of structural racism and discrimination in our society and on our campus undermine our goals of being a diverse, inclusive and academically excellent community.”
This plan comes at a time when universities across the US have been facing highly controversial clashes including oppressive language wars, sexual assault and other high profile cases of racial discrimination.
Good for you, Brown and president Paxton.
