Boston University’s Department of Athletics serves as a source of spirit and pride for the campus with roughly 600 student-athletes competing at the highest level of college athletics in 24 NCAA Division I varsity sports.
Since 2004, the Terriers have averaged nearly six conference titles per year and made a combined 59 team appearances in NCAA Championships. During that span, the storied men’s ice hockey program has raised the Beanpot five times and also claimed their fifth national championship.
BU has been a proud member of the Patriot League since 2013, aligning with colleges and universities that share our core values. Twenty of BU’s 24 athletic programs compete under the Patriot League banner while the men’s and women’s ice hockey teams are in the Hockey East Association and the men’s rowing and women’s lightweight programs compete annually within the Intercollegiate Rowing Association.
BU Athletics believes in empowering student-athletes to become leaders who can succeed on the field, excel in the classroom and engage in the community. In the 2016-17 academic year alone, our department-wide grade-point average was a record-setting 3.19 and our student-athletes combined to participate in more than 3,400 hours of community service and outreach.
In the summer of 2015, the department conducted a self-assessment to better define what makes us Who We Are. The result was a series of 15 tenets that serve as a synopsis of guiding principles for the department. Whether you’re a prospective Terrier, current member of the Boston University community or an alum, we encourage you to learn more about Who We Are.
