“We’re living at a time of intense global change and upheaval, which presents great opportunity and also requires innovation and entrepreneurship for the well being of our global society,” said Craig Cogut, Brown University alumnus (’75) and Founder and Managing Partner of Pegasus Capital Advisors, L.P. “The advantage of studying liberal arts is the ability to speak and understand different languages, and I don’t just I just don’t mean English, Spanish, or Mandarin. Music, art, and literature are also languages that help you know the world. They teach you to listen, to hear, to see, to be flexible and creative, and most importantly, to learn from one another.” The Cogut Center for the Humanities at Brown University, named in recognition of the generous support from Craig and Deborah Cogut, supports collaborative research in the humanities, focusing on interdisciplinary and comparative work across cultural and linguistic boundaries, and supports fellowship and grant programs, Brown’s distinguished visitors program, and regular campus events.Details
