Brown makes an honest effort to promote socioeconomic diversity in the student body—the recent change to need-blind admissions is just one example of this goal. Also, a large endowment several years ago (the biggest single gift ever made to Brown) promises to preserve the goal of providing financial aid to deserving students. While the hard numbers indicate that there is a good deal of racial and economic diversity at Brown, the day-to-day interactions between students are the real test of diversity and tolerance at Brown. There a very few outright problems or public sentiments that indicate a lack of diversity at Brown. In spite of this, students do not necessarily integrate themselves in their social circles.
The University gives Brown the basic ingredients to enjoy diversity in political, economic, racial, and geographical areas. It also provides support for students who come from a variety of backgrounds. Regardless of background, every student will be in a situation where they are confronted with people and opinions that they have never experienced before coming here. The vocal nature of Brown students and the University’s outstanding policies, which protect freedom of student expression, mean that the school is as diverse as the students here make it.
