The time for action is now. With a broad group of committed BU faculty and staff, agreed-upon goals and road maps, we are driving the Boston University Strategic Plan forward daily. We continue our progress on key focus areas and initiatives that will achieve our objective to continue Boston University’s ascent as a leading private residential research university focused on high-quality, innovative undergraduate and graduate education. We continuously track metrics against this goal and monitor and measure our efforts for impact. With a clear plan and momentum, our team of collaborators remains laser focused on our strategic vision for Boston University 2030.
