Join your colleagues on a tour of two Providence higher education institutions. Attendees will be picked-up at the hotel and taken to Brown University for a light breakfast and conversation with colleagues.
Founded in 1764, Brown University is a leading research university home to world-renowned faculty, and also an innovative educational institution where the curiosity, creativity and intellectual joy of students drives academic excellence. Providence, Rhode Island — Brown's home for more than two and a half centuries — is a vibrant place to live, work and study, a stimulating hub for innovation, and a city rich in cultural diversity. You will tour two parts of campus, the Knowledge District (home to the Warren Alpert Medical School, the School of Professional Studies, and more) and our College Hill campus.
Founded in 1877, RISD (pronounced “RIZ-dee”) and the RISD Museum help make Providence, RI among the most culturally active and creative cities in the region. RISD’s mission, through its college and museum, is to educate students and the public in the creation and appreciation of works of art and design, to discover and transmit knowledge and to make lasting contributions to a global society through critical thinking, scholarship and innovation. This tour will show you some of RISD’s studios, dining halls, and event spaces.
