  1. President Brown has taken BU from decades of stagnation to a thriving university. You get what you pay for. Similar situation at Northeastern with President Aoun. They are two of the best university presidents in the country.

    1. Decades of stagnation? What aspects were stagnating over the years? I applaud his work, but BU has not been sitting idly in my opinion. If construction is any measure of growth, I’ve seen some very nice and $$$ buildings popping up and down Comm Ave over the years. I have been equally impressed with my own BME department’s growth as well over this time period.

  2. I would be very interested to hear President Brown’s rationalization for paying fully qualified adjunct professors $6,000 per course [= $36,000 per year if they can get 3 courses] and not offering them any health insurance or benefits.
