Boston University’s students, faculty, trustees, staff, and alumni convened in April 2006 to celebrate the installation of Dr. Robert A. Brown as our tenth president.

Bob Brown’s passion for education combined with his profound understanding of Boston University's even greater potential as a world-class, urban research institution has ignited new energy within the university. We hope you will accept our invitation to become better acquainted with Bob and to learn more about Boston University at the Inaugural events in Boston and New York.

As we forge a new era at BU, we will take this opportunity to celebrate and reflect upon who we are as a diverse learning and research community; how we benefit from — and serve — greater Boston and beyond; and what we can do together to ensure that the educational opportunities of Boston University are accessible to all.

On behalf of everyone involved with the Inauguration, thank you for helping to make Bob and Beverly Brown’s first year at BU exciting and memorable. We look forward to seeing you in April.

Elaine B. Kirshenbaum and Roscoe C. Giles
Inaugural Advisory Committee
