This story, part one of five, was published on BU Today September 26, 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 seven-minute installment focuses on Brown’s initial impressions of Boston University, his transition here this summer from MIT, where previously he was provost, and the personal and professional interests of his wife, Beverly.
