  1. I am hearing that Mr. Menino, though being given a academic appointment with the rank of Professor, will not teach. This is very odd, considering that one of the University’s strongest distinctions is that all faculty teach our students. Mayor Kevin White, an equally distinguished leader and visionary, was appointed to a professorship when he retired as Mayor of Boston and taught Boston University students. I’m not arguing the wisdom of Mayor Menino not teaching, but stumped about the basis of his professorship. Professorships are generally based upon classroom teaching and scholarly work.

  2. This is great news! Mayor Menino is a real mover and a shaker behind the scenes in all areas of the politics of running a city. I am thrilled just to have him on campus to do research and possibly impart some of his boots on the ground knowledge of politics. This is a guy that learned from others while on the job, like Mayor Flynn, who went on to be Ambassador to the Vatican. Though he has a tough time in expressing himself, he has brought this city far through his intellect and ability to work with and through a tough Boston political system.

  3. What a great addition to Boston University. I truly hope that the university and professor Meninno revisit the framework of the Initiative on Cities to allow anyone
    involved with it have access to the wisdom, vision and thoughts its newest urban scholar.
    I feel undergraduate and graduate be presented with well planned symposiums and workshops that include professor Meninno as an proactive participant as a teaching coordinator for the Initiative on Cities.

  4. Menino’s commitment to Boston continues! Excellent contribution to a win-win situation. Would be happy to serve on his healthcare cabinet.
