There are 9 comments on Crystal Williams Promoted to New Position with Focus on Building Community

  1. Outstanding. I’ve had a few opportunities to meet Provost Williams & seen first hand how she embodies inclusion; communicating with humanity & openness with everyone. While she’s going to need all our help, this bodes well for improving campus DEI.

  2. I couldn’t agree more! I have long felt that we had too many physical plant, dining services, and faculty on campus… and way too few administrators! This is especially true in diversity services, which are significantly under-represented on campus.

  3. Congratulations! What exactly is the role for that position? Was the position posted or did BU create another exception from their job posting requirement?

    Salaries are frozen and 401k contributions are suspended. Is anyone at BU looking at the costs of all these promotions?
