About Us


The Office of Student Programs and Leadership (OSPL) aims to provide opportunities for an enriched academic life for students in the College of Arts and Sciences. Keeping in mind that student experiences outside of the classroom are most formative and impactful when connected to academic life, our programs are designed to help students navigate this large and vibrant University, connect to classmates and professors, hone leadership skills, and prepare for life beyond BU.

Through a comprehensive First Year Experience program, the OSPL seeks to ensure that all first year students undergo a successful and supported transition.  The FYE program connects students with faculty, peers and student organizations while tapping into the unique spirit of BU’s largest College.

We hope you will take the time to explore our website and discover the many exciting programs, events and student organizations that are provided through our office. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact us.
