Brown University is a private University located in Providence, Rhode Island. Founded in 1764 as Rhode Island College, it is the third-oldest institution of higher education in New England and the seventh-oldest in the United States. It is a member of the Ivy League.

Brown was the first College in the nation to accept students of all religious affiliations. Brown has the oldest undergraduate engineering program in the Ivy League (1847), the only undergraduate Egyptology department in the United States, and, until recently, the only History of Mathematics department in the world (housed in the same building as Egyptology). Brown was also one of the first institutions to emphasize computer science, as well as media studies, with its department of Modern Culture and Media, where students study film production, film criticism, and critical theory.

The Brown "New Curriculum," instituted in 1969, eliminates distribution requirements and mandatory A/B/C grade (allowing any course to be taken on a "satisfactory/no credit" basis). Moreover, there are no pluses (+) or minuses (-) in the grading system.
