Video conversation with Robert Brown, Part 3

This story, part three of five, was published on BU Today September 28, 2005.

Last month, just weeks after being named president of BU, Robert Brown sat down with seven members of the University community for an informal conversation. The faculty, staff, and student participants were invited to ask Brown any questions they liked. Highlights of the resulting two-hour conversation will appear on BU Today each day this week in short video segments produced by BU Productions. Today’s installment focuses on what Brown considers distinct about BU, such as its offering a strong foundation in liberal arts education as well as opportunities for advanced instruction in areas such as communications, management, engineering, and fine arts.
