At yesterday’s annual “State of Brown” address in which Brown University administrators delivered a speech about the major issues facing the university, the Dean of Admission, Jim Miller, made an interesting prediction. He, like many admissions counselors who analyze demographic trends in the admissions process each year, believes there will be a fundamental demographic shift in the students applying to Brown University in the coming years.
According to the account of the “State of Brown” speech by a writer for “The Brown Daily Herald,” “The University expects to see more applications and students from the south and the west regions of the country, as well as a growing number of students of Hispanic and Latino backgrounds. Miller also emphasized the need to understand and use new forms of communication and outreach. ‘We need to be very current, going forward as an institution … in the way we reach the next generation of Brown students,’ [Miller] said.”
