Raul Fernandez

Associate Director


Raul’s mission is to ensure that the services provided by Student Activities meet the ever-changing needs of our students and campus partners. He keeps us focused on engaging students in meaningful conversations, opportunities, and experiences. Additionally, he supervises a team responsible for marketing and events.

His passion is global educational development. His travels have brought him to Honduras, Haiti, and Rwanda, where he worked with students and alumni on public health, medical, and educational projects. He has lectured in Ireland and Switzerland, and his visits to BU’s Study Abroad programs in Geneva, London, Madrid, and Paris have further developed his sense of global citizenship.

He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in communication from Boston University and Barry University, as well as a graduate certificate in nonprofit management from Northeastern University. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in educational leadership & development at Boston University’s School of Education, where his focus is on the participation of students in university policymaking.
