In 2003, the logo’s design was radically changed: fine detailing was removed from it, leaving only two key elements. One of them is the inscription “Brown,” the other is a mascot. The name of the university department was placed on top and gave it an arched shape. At the bottom was placed the head of a brown bear with an open mouth, in which powerful white teeth can be seen.
