There are 3 comments on New Trustee Diversity Committee to Advance BU’s Antiracism Efforts

  1. This all sounds very interesting and I hope it makes a difference. So will these various groups be asking the question of why BU needs its own police force and whether that should continue?

  2. Great first step. I hope that the university has plans to communicate with the broader diverse alumni body and not just the councils. More to the point, it would be great if the represented alumni could participate in electing the council members, there was at least one at-large meeting, and committees.
