A report of The Brown Project, which concerns coeducation at colleges in the late 1970s, is presented. Section one contains five working papers on various aspects of the undergraduate experience, based on the work of the research team representing six institutions. Topics concern: academic and intellectual development and sex differences; faculty-student interaction and student perceptions of faculty support and involvement; relatedness and autonomy; future plans of men and women and possible contributing factors; and women's self-concepts. Section two concerns the Brown University merger with Pembroke college in terms of student characteristics before and after the merger, and student views of their institution and themselves in 1961, 1967, and 1974. In section three, papers from the conference "Women/Men/College: The Educational Implication of Sex Roles in Transition (December, 1977) are presented. They concern: the ways in which institutions respond to women and men; the issue of policy change in colleges and universities; and the complexity of sex roles in transition. The fourth section contains a final statement of the Corporation Committee on the Status of Women at Brown University. Through its subgroups concentrating on special aspects of the study, the Committee summarized its reactions and prepared recommendations for consideration by the Corporation and the University at large.
