Celebrate alumni community and diversity

Connecting through shared experiences

Brown students and alumni come in every conceivable variety. Several BAA-affiliated programs and groups focus especially on celebrating the diversity of the alumni community.

Multicultural Alumni Committee (MAC)

MAC is an alumni voice for diversity.  A standing committee of the Brown Alumni Association (BAA) Board of Governors, MAC strives to be:

  • A conduit for connecting diverse alumni with the BAA  and its programs
  • A touchstone for reconnecting with Brown in a multicultural context
  • The primary channel for engaging alumni of color (AOC) and transgendered, bisexual, gay, and lesbian alumni (TBGALA) on diversity issues and activities
  • A community convener for Brown’s diverse alumni affinity groups
  • A resource to alumni and the University for celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion

MAC-Sponsored Affinity Groups

In 2000, the Brown Alumni Association and its Multicultural Alumni Committee began to explore a new form of involvement with alumni of color: Councils in which alumni of similar ethnic/cultural backgrounds could celebrate their community’s connections and also address shared concerns. Three vibrant multicultural affinity groups have emerged from this process of exploration:

  • Asian/Asian American Alumni Alliance (A4)
    A4 facilitates engagement with Brown and addresses the needs of the Asian and Asian American community.
