Brown University welcomes and challenges independent, creative, diverse and courageous thinkers to collaborate, innovate and explore with life-changing and world-changing impact. Brown is a place where ideas and passion lead to lives of purpose and positive consequence. It is a leading research university that maintains a particular commitment to exceptional undergraduate instruction.
Founded in 1764, Brown University is the seventh-oldest college in the United States. It is an independent, coeducational Ivy League institution comprising undergraduate and graduate programs, plus the Alpert Medical School, the School of Public Health, the School of Engineering and the School of Professional Studies.
Since its founding, the University has sought to contribute to the community, nation and the world through teaching, research and service at the highest levels. Its mission — to address some of the world’s great challenges, be they poverty, environmental change, access to quality healthcare — is fulfilled each day through work both on campus and around the world. Brown’s approach, which blends interdisciplinary problem-solving with rigorous intellectual inquiry, is what makes the University truly distinctive.
In recognition of its exceptional undergraduate teaching, generous financial aid and singular student experience, Brown University continues to place among top schools in national and international rankings of college and universities. U.S. News & World Report’s 2017 “America’s Best Colleges” ranked Brown #14 in the Best National Universities category. The University garnered the #4 rank among national universities for undergraduate teaching, #10 on the “Best Value Colleges” list, and #22 on the “Most Innovative Schools” list. In other rankings released within the last year, the University ranked #8 on Forbes’ list of “America’s Top Colleges for 2016” and #9 on the magazine’s list of “25 Schools Worth Every Penny.”
