PROVIDENCE — Brown University has laid out a new strategy that will extend the reach of the Ivy League institution and move more graduate students, researchers, administrators and housing into the Jewelry District.
Christina H. Paxson, the university’s new president, won approval Oct. 27 from Brown’s governing board of a sweeping 10-year plan that includes further development of the East Side campus and continued expansion across the Providence River.
