Save Brown Fencing

1,502 Signatures Goal: 5,000

An Athletics Review Committee appointed by the Brown Corporation has recently recommended cutting four varsity teams, including the Brown Men’s and Women’s Fencing Teams. This would not be merely defunding the teams to save costs, but rather completely eliminating them with the recommendation that they not be reinstated through fundraising. One of the main factors in their decision is their belief that the Brown community has no stake or interest in the Brown Fencing Team’s success on the varsity level. We plan to fight this proposal every step of the way.

Brown fencers, many of whom are walk-ons, are dedicated student-athletes actively involved in the Brown and surrounding community. Our members include Class Board and Meiklejohn leaders and TAs, have been featured in the Brown Bear sports magazine, and contribute to the school in the classroom and through other extracurricular commitments including community service, in addition to achieving an impressive record this past season that culminated in sending 5 fencers (4 sophomores and 1 first year) to the NCAA Championships and finishing 13th in the nation. Our alums continue to support and donate to the Brown athletics program because of the positive impacts of their varsity fencing experience.

By signing this petition, you can help us prove to the Committee and the Corporation that the Brown community truly does care. Brown Varsity Fencing means a lot to us.  We very much appreciate your support.
