About the BU Arts Initiative
It is the mission of the BU Arts Initiative to ensure that the arts are deeply embedded in the cultural and intellectual fabric of the University.
“Artistic engagement brings immeasurable value to our social and academic development, impacting not only the way we perceive the world but how we approach so many disciplines, from the sciences to the humanities. The Boston University Arts Initiative ensures that the arts are fundamental to the BU student experience inside and outside of the classroom.” — Jean Morrison, University Provost and Chief Academic Officer
In coordination with the Provost’s Arts Council, the staff of the BU Arts Initiative will work to:
- Raise the visibility of and bring recognition to the breadth and excellence of the arts at BU
- Increase student access to the arts at BU and in the Boston area, so that BU students develop an active and participatory role in the arts as a meaningful element of their BU experience
- Support student, faculty, and staff initiatives that engage our community in the practice of and intellectual dialogue around the arts and art making
