[SHORTENED TITLE UP TO 50 CHARACTERS] 2 Abstract Brown University has faced trial and tribulations since the very foundation of the school. Students of the University expected them to uphold the original belief system that the school was founded on. The students began to fight after they felt the weight and pressure of being the minority on the campus of Brown University. They took on a fight that they know would not be an easy fight. But the never quit. At time they were tired but the passion of fire of fighting for what they believe in was all they needed to push through the wall. The Brown students for diversity and equality, and that’s what they received.

[SHORTENED TITLE UP TO 50 CHARACTERS] 3 THE PATHWAYS TO DIVERSITY AND INCUSION AT BROWN UNIVERSITY HOW DID BROWN BECOME A MORE DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE CAMPUS? Brown University was founded in the spring of 1764. Brown is a member of the Ivy League and recognized for the superiority of its teaching, research and exceptional curriculum. The belief that Brown was founded upon is at the top of my list is why I choose to research further into the history of the university. Brown believed that its students, faculty, and staff are obligated to identify ways to make Brown stronger and better. They were also built on the idea of accepting students regardless of their religious belief or race. Brown strived to be a university of diversity among the entire campus. The history that sealed the deal were the steps that Brown’s student, faculty, and staff took to reach the level of diversity that they are today. Brown was built upon those certain principals and beliefs but did not always follow them. The African American population was always accepted on the campus of Brown but never respected among their peers of other races. Brown University builds on a long legacy of work and activism by generations of Brown students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The information offered to this particular subject shows the journey the university took to become a more diverse and inclusive campus, recognizing the critical role of this campus activism. African Americans have history at Brown University starting backing in 1877. Inman Page and George Washington Milford were the first African American students to graduate in 1877 from Brown University. Only a small number of black students enrolled in the years that followed. Between the years of 1877 and 1912, Brown graduated five black men who became presidents of black colleges. With the history beginning so minimum, how did Brown University become a more diverse and inclusive campus?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
