Providence Journal editorial praises Brown’s decision to contribute an additional $31.5 million to the City of Providence over the next 11 years and describes the teamwork involved on the part of President Ruth J. Simmons and Mayor Angel Taveras to make it happen: “That is not only because the city can use such a generous contribution, but because of what it says about the community: Leading institutions, such as Brown, are dedicated to the well-being of Providence.”
