Brown-Tougaloo Partnership

Fifty years ago, with the issues of the Civil Rights Movement confronting both schools, Brown entered into a partnership with historically black Tougaloo College in Mississippi. This “cooperative arrangement,” which continues today, was intended to benefit both schools through an exchange of students and faculty, collaborative research ventures, and administrative initiatives. Here, professor Ned Greene, one of the first Brown faculty members to participate in the Brown-Tougaloo Cooperative Exchange, works with Tougaloo College students in a chemistry lab.
