  1. This is so meaningful! Everyone has the right to feel safe in their body. More schools need to take note of this because it is imperative for them to be this inclusive. I hope other schools will follow BU’s example!!!

  2. Congratulations to our student leaders from Q, BIPOC Wellness, and other student groups involved. BU Community is so fortunate to have your bold leadership. I only wish BU administration would follow your example or simply be the example by having paid staff designated to support students from these groups. BU needs to take note of other schools that actually hire experts to support LGBTQ+ and BIPOC students. I recommend that concerned faculty, staff, alum, and parents who support these efforts consider starting a fund to compensate students for their hard work. BU should be ashamed of having student leaders (although they do a fabulous job) bear the burden of such great work. It’s sound to me like unpaid labor that no institution should be proud to tout.
