The University became aware Dec. 18 of reports of a case involving Coventry and West Greenwich police and Stephon Alexander. Dr. Alexander is not currently an employee at Brown University, but during the fall semester he was at Brown in a visiting scholar (non-instructional and unpaid) role. Because Dr. Alexander is scheduled to be appointed to a faculty position in January, Brown is engaged in a review of the incident in the context of University policies and Brown’s core values. The review does not constitute any adverse determination about the incident, and it would be premature to speak to any potential outcomes. The reported incident did not take place on or near the Brown campus, and the municipal department that handled the case would be the department to manage sharing of details.
