Brown University's Graduate School Brown is renowned for its distinctive student body — independent and self-directed — and for the educational culture that fosters these qualities.Its small size compared to most other leading research universities provides a human scale that allows members of the university community to interact on a meaningful personal level and to develop relationships that enhance the teaching and research work of the university.
