BrownGroups makes it easy to maintain lists of people in a department and to use those lists across many applications such as email, scheduling, Google, Canvas, Drive, etc. Departmental groups are automatically updated with the latest information from Workday and can be customized to include other people who contribute to a department's efforts. Please note: This service is currently available to Academic Departments only. More departments will be added in the future.

Departmental Identity Administrators have default access to this service and may use their discretion to allow others to serve as BrownGroups administrators for their department by adding them to the GroupsAdmins group.

Please contact the Help Desk:

  • for help using or accessing the service;
  • to report errors in the data for your department; or
  • to request the BrownGroups service for your Center, Program or Institute.
