Brown University’s institute for international affairs and public policy has received a gift of $50 million dollars. With the new gift, the Watson Institute plans to increase its number of faculty by 30 professors, and construct a new building.

Approximately half of the gift will go towards the new building. Early plans call for 20,000 square foot facility. Final design and site selection have yet to be completed.

The gift comes as the university embarks on a funding campaign to raise $3 billion dollars, the largest in its history.
