Your Elected Leaders

Alumni Elections: Your vote counts!

Brown’s alumni body has a significant say in the governance of the University and of its own community through the biennial Alumni Election, administered by the Brown Alumni Association (BAA). With some elections decided by as few as 50 votes, every vote is critical.
