A Call for Action


This is not only a call for improvement and strategic change; it is the beginning—for some, perhaps, even a continuation—of an important dialogue for the University community. The Strategic Plan outlined priorities; this document poses important questions regarding the possibilities for “unlocking” undergraduate education at Boston University. What can we do to utilize all assets of the University to increase students’ participation in effective, highly meaningful educational practices? How can we eliminate all barriers and transfer inconsistencies in order to give students ease of movement between colleges and full access to our International Programs? Which practices are distinctive to our campus, and how do we ensure that all students have a chance to participate in these high-impact experiences? We look forward to meaningful shared discussions, merging traditional success with new ideas, collaborative accountability for important goals, and actions that will matter.
