Dr. Rae Linda Brown

PLU’s annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is named in honor of Dr. Rae Linda Brown, PLU Professor of Music and former Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs. During her brief tenure as PLU’s provost, Dr. Brown launched the first campus wide Undergraduate Research Symposium in 2017. After her passing in August 2017, the symposium was renamed the Dr. Rae Linda Brown Undergraduate Research Symposium. Dr. Brown believed deeply in the importance of faculty-mentored student research, and especially in the benefits of students engaging in this work early in their undergraduate careers.
