A story in Wednesday’s Herald (“Corporation will consider ‘young alum’ positions,” April 15) incorrectly reported that the proposed young alumni trustees would be elected through the Brown Alumni Association. In fact, according to Vice President for Public Affairs and University Relations Marisa Quinn, the proposal calls for young alumni trustees to be appointed by the Corporation’s Committee on Trustee Vacancies.

The same story also incorrectly reported that no Corporation member since 1938 had graduated from Brown less than 10 years prior to serving on the Corporation. In fact, no Corporation member since 1978 has served within five years of his or her graduation, according to Quinn.

“Corporation will consider ‘young alum’ positions” also referred to Mike Da Cruz ’09 as a member of Students for a Democratic Society. While he has recently been a member of that organization, he is not currently an active member, and the opinions he expressed in the story were his own, not those of SDS.
