a passion for teaching others
The Browne Center began in 1993 as an experiential teaching lab for the students of the University of New Hampshire.
Word got out that the programs were effective, and we began offering our services to a variety of populations, seeking many different outcomes.
Over the past 25+ years, we have continued to expand our offerings while remaining true to our core; We help people become more effective through the teaching, practice and alignment of personal skills and team culture.
The Browne Center was named for Evelyn Browne (1915-1994), a visionary leader with a drive for excellence and an ability to bring out the best in people. Evelyn “Ev” had a passion for teaching others the value of living in balance with nature. Her love for the outdoor life brought her to UNH in 1943 to teach horseback riding and riflery. Ev remained at UNH as a faculty member until her retirement in 1981.
