Bio-demographic Information Resources

Boston University is committed to supporting diversity within its community. To measure our progress towards creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for our students, faculty, staff, and alums, we must have and accurate representation of our populations. We achieve this through the voluntary collection of profile data in our student, employee, and alumni data systems. Bio-demographic data includes personal, economic, and social indicators such as sex, gender, race/ethnicity, and name. Below is information on the personal data we would like to collect, how it is used by the university, and how you can update your official record
