We are visioning the next era of the Brown School.

In 2007, the Brown School launched Impact 2020, a strategic plan to achieve the “next big leap” for the Brown School. Since that time, in accordance with six select initiatives, the School has developed a master’s and PhD program in public health; launched a dual degree in social policy and the Clark-Fox Policy Institute; increased student scholarships and completed Hillman Hall;  cultivated new transdisciplinary collaborations, including social entrepreneurship; and fostered community partnerships in our city and region.

Now, we are developing the next blueprint to help the Brown School advance social work, public health and social policy education and impact.

This website is a portal to learn more about the School’s strategic planning process, view the findings from our discovery, and stay up to date on developing action and implementation plans.

Most recent updates

Our five-phase planning process is complete, and in February and March 2020, Dean Mckay will be meeting with various School stakeholders in person to discuss our outcomes.

We will continue to update this site with our draft strategic plan materials, as well as updates on the implementation phase of the plan, which will take place through December 2020.
