Community & Inclusion

We are a network of non-academic units and initiatives across the University whose vision and work directly implement two of the 2030 Strategic Plan initiatives, “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” and “Community, Big yet Small.”

Our collective mission is to build community and create spaces that encourage new connections; create a welcoming campus culture for all; ensure that BU is recruiting and retaining world-class students, staff, and faculty; and improve our capacity for civil discourse and learning around complex issues and identities such as race, religion, disability, first-generation status, gender, and sexuality.
