BU Arts Initiative
The BU Arts Initiative was launched in 2012 to ensure that the arts are deeply embedded in the cultural and intellectual fabric of the University. In coordination with the Provost’s Arts Council, the staff of the BU Arts Initiative work to bring visibility and recognition to the breadth and excellence of the arts at BU, and to help students develop an active and participatory role in the arts as a meaningful element of their BU experience. More information on the Arts Initiative and opportunities it offers for engagement can be found on its website.

The Council is co- chaired by Professor Elizabeth Loizeaux, Associate Provost for Undergraduate Affairs, and Professor Azer Bestavros, Director of the Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering. More information can be found on the CETLI website.
