The Brown Foundation announces the formation of a Brown Scholar initiative, the Brown Foundation Freshmen Leadership Organization (“Brown Foundation FLO”). Formed in 2020, the Brown Foundation FLO equips incoming freshmen Brown scholars. Freshmen Brown Scholars are paired with either a sophomore or junior Brown Scholar pursuing the same major and the upperclassmen serve as mentors to their mentees. Additionally freshmen Brown Scholars participate in workshops, listen to motivational speakers and are provided leadership, professional development and tutoring opportunities from upperclassmen. The Brown Foundation FLO strengthens the Brown Scholar network by providing social engagements for Brown Scholars to connect across disciplines and form valuable relationships with current Brown Scholars. A professional directory connects current Brown Scholar to Brown Scholar graduates.
Dr. Eli Jones, Former Dean of the Mays Business School and Professor of Marketing gave a well attended, inspirational and interactive talk to Brown Scholars on the evening of November 8, 2022 about leadership, entrepreneurship and finding your style.
