Learn More Series

Each year, we devote ourselves to investigating a single topic of social importance through our Learn More Series. The effort features nationally renowned speakers, workshops, panel discussions, and reading groups, among other programming. And we encourage the community to participate. In fact, that’s the point!

This rigorous exploration, spread across the entire academic year, is intended to continuously spark new learning, catalyze important conversations among students, staff, and faculty, and supply our community members with the tools to turn theory into action.

Because we’re firm believers in the power of the collective, we encourage community members to submit ideas and proposals for programming related to our annual theme that they believe would engage a broad range of constituents.

Boston University strives to be accessible, inclusive, and diverse in our facilities, programming. and academic offerings. Your experience in these event is very important to us. If you have a disability (including but not limited to learning or attention, mental health, concussion, vision, mobility, hearing, physical or other health related), require communication access services for the deaf or hard of hearing, or believe that you require a reasonable accommodation for another reason, please reach out to Karin Firoza at kfiroza@bu.edu for more information.

Every part features a major speaker and is surrounded with a variety of related events and D&I-hosted programming, designed to build off one another.
