Brown is an independent, coeducational research institution that maintains a particular commitment to exceptional undergraduate instruction. It was the first Ivy League school to accept students from all religious affiliations. It is considered the most laid-back of the eight Ivy League institutions because of its open curriculum.

  • The university has connections to seven Nobel laureates including alumni Craig C. Mello and Jerry White who won for physiology or medicine and peace respectively, and current physics faculty member Leon Cooper. Fields Medal winner David Mumford is emeritus professor of applied mathematics at the university.
  • Brown’s diverse student body is exemplified by notable alumni from all walks of life. From the father of American education Horace Mann and The Office star John Krasinski, to Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark and financier and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, the university’s people are varied. Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, graduated from Brown in 2014, having transferred from the university of Oxford.
