At its monthly meeting Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2016, the faculty of Brown University amended the Faculty Rules and Regulations to change the designation of the second Monday of October from Fall Weekend to Indigenous People’s Day.
The faculty of Brown University has voted to designate the second Monday in October as Indigenous People's Day. Modifications to the University's academic calendar require a faculty vote. In April 2009, the faculty renamed Columbus Day as the Fall Weekend holiday.

A portrait of Ruth J. Simmons, Brown’s 18th president, has been completed and hung in Sayles Hall. The painting, by renowned portraitist Steven Polson, joins the University’s collection of 317 portraits of presidents, chancellors, deans, faculty, and benefactors commissioned throughout Brown's 250-year history. Thirty-five of those portraits currently hang in Sayles Hall.

On December 30, 2015, two days before the 100th anniversary of his appearance in the 1916 Tournament of Roses football game, legendary running back and coach Fritz Pollard ’19 was posthumously inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame. http://bit.ly/208ODqX

"First-ever" was the story of Pollard’s life. He was the first black player on a Brown football team, first black Walter Camp backfield All-American, and, despite racist taunts and not being able to eat in the same restaurants as his teammates, he was one of only two African Americans in what would become the NFL. In 1921 he became its first black head coach.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis — ALS — can arise from aberrant genes. A group of five Brown University professors proposes that a cure may also come from aberrant genes — genetic mutations that suppress ALS. A new research grant supports their comprehensive investigation of ALS in flies, worms, mice and human cells.
