ASDB: Reaching Out For Diversity
We strongly believe that the rich diversity at BU gives every student a better experience and a better education. It helps us attract not only exceptional students from around the world and from minority groups at home, but all students who want to learn in a setting where cultural and intellectual differences flourish.
The Admissions Student Diversity Board (ASDB) helps keep us one of America’s most diverse centers of learning by actively recruiting from multicultural communities. This student organization works with Admissions to increase enrollment and enrich the experience of African-American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander and Native American students at BU.
ASDB’s three committees approach their mission in different ways.
- The Community Outreach Committee maintains relationships with the many multicultural clubs and organizations on campus. They also stay closely connected to the Student Activities Office, Cultural Consortium and the Howard Thurman Center.
- The Communications Committee organizes spring and fall phone-a-thons that build ties between current and prospective students. With the help of the BU community, they call students from underrepresented populations who have inquired about the University. For students who enroll at BU, the committee offers support and helps create a sense of community.
- The Campus Visit Committee serves as the face of ASDB to prospective multicultural students and groups who visit campus. Committee members provide campus tours, serve as hosts and make presentations. Their goal is to show the benefits of BU’s diverse environment through the eyes of current students.
