Brown has earned a global reputation for its innovative undergraduate educational experience, rooted in its flexible yet academically rigorous Open Curriculum.
Probe theoretical physics with a Nobel Prize winner. Invent a new musical instrument. Design a medical device to prevent strokes during cardiac surgery.
At Brown, undergraduates are creators, leaders and doers who are not satisfied with merely raising questions — they learn to confront, address and solve problems facing society, the nation and the world.
Students are the drivers of their own academic experiences, surrounded by a community of world-class scholars invested in their success. They are actively engaged in teaching and learning, empowered to advance their intellectual growth, and transformed to lead lives of action and purpose.
Brown has helped Sunil Tohan forge strong connections — with inspirational professors, the local community and the wider world.
