From The Herald Newsroom

We've had an exciting semester thus far, both at Brown and at The Herald! In conjunction with UCS Elections Board, The Herald recently hosted a debate for UCS and UFB candidates, as well as a panel discussion about legislating same-sex marriage in collaboration with the Taubman Center for Public Policy.

In addition, please check out The Herald's four-part spread on concentration trends at Brown. Make sure to explore the exciting interactive graphic that our new data science team created! This semester, The Herald also wrote an in-depth four-part series called "Silent Violence" that investigates sexual assault at Brown.

Digitizing The Herald

The Herald serves as one of the most complete and most important records of Brown's history. We are currently working to digitize all bound volumes and put them on a searchable, accessible, online archive. We've made good progress and have completed 42 years thus far. However, there are still over 70 years to go and we need your help. 

Our goal is to digitize every Herald issue since 1891 and preserve this daily record of Brown's history. Click here to see if your year is digitizedAn additional $6,000 will allow us to add one more year from the 1990s and one more year from the 1980s to our online repository. With your help, we can make sure that the important moments at Brown as well as your cherished memories are preserved. We have pledged to digitize The Herald from 2008 onward, but we need your help to digitize your years at The HeraldClick here to donate to The Herald Digitization Project.

Gifts of any size will go a long way in ensuring that past years of The Herald are remembered. The Brown Daily Herald, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and all gifts to The Herald are tax deductible. 

I look foward to seeing you at the Reunion Reception. Your comments, questions and feedback are welcomed. We would love to hear from you!
