About Government & Community Affairs
“In the heart of the City, in the service of the City.”
President of Boston University, 1911–1924
From its founding in 1839 through its growth into the largest university in Boston and the fourth-largest private not-for-profit university in the country, Boston University has stayed true to its commitment to conduct research, scholarship, artistic creation, and professional practice in the service of the surrounding community.
BU’s Government & Community Affairs office is the main contact with area residents and elected leaders, informing the public of community interest projects and efforts undertaken by the University.
