 I don't want to delete this community but also don't want to continue to maintain it if no one is actually using it!  Let me know if there is anyone out there.

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young.  GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.


The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution


Fill out the survey at:  www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.


While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the United States.

I live in the UK (Wales, to be exact) and have just joined this community. Are there any Brown alums in the UK? I know there's a Brown Club of London, but what about people outside London? Anyone?

I finally got one this summer when I visited Providence after a long absence.

It's still waiting on the credit card to be paid off, heh. I'm not exactly in the income bracket of most of the people who write in to the BAM! But it was something I've been wanting for years, ever since the one I got at graduation was lost when I was working at a health fair for rheumatic diseases one day in Los Angeles.

Because I was very ill as an undergraduate and didn't have a diagnosis, my college years were quite a challenge, and I truly feel I earned that ring!!! LOL :)

I have the little women's gold one with the antique-look face. I will have to take a photo :)

Hi everyone,

I am now the maintainer of this community for Brown alumni, and I'm looking forward to getting to meet others who spent time at Brown.

While I was there (undergrad, class of '84) I didn't get to meet as many people as I would have liked to meet...I was struggling with a serious illness for which I had to spend my college years seeking a diagnosis (I eventually learned I have systemic lupus).

So now is my chance to make some friends from Brown, although I can no longer lay claim to looking exactly as I did in my college years ;) Hope you all help make this a thriving LJ community.

This summer, btw, I visited the Brown campus while visiting family in the area. This is something I do not get to do often as I live in California these days. My photos are at http://www.flickr.com/photos/xbeepx/sets -- I am NOT a professional, but since some are of Brown I thought I would share the url here for fun.

Great to meet you and looking forward to a post from you here soon,

My wife and I are both Brown '83. She's just written a memoir concerning her return to her lifetime love, ice skating, after a serious injury, and associated emotional and spiritual journey. I've read part of it, it's quite good.

Are any of you literary agents?
