Brown-Tougaloo Partnership

Brown-Tougaloo Partnership Program

The Brown-Tougaloo Partnership consists of various programs that engage the culture, academics, and histories of these two distinctive institutions.

The Brown University-Tougaloo College Partnership (BTP) was formalized in 1964 during the Civil Rights era with the goal of enriching both campuses through student, faculty and administrative exchanges. The partnership features academic and cultural exchanges, collaborative research ventures and administrative level engagements. In the over 50 years since its creation, more than 500 individuals have participated in our various programs and projects.
