The University’s Mission Statement and feedback from the BU community helped to articulate our Strategic Vision Statement for the decade ahead:

  • Continue the ascent of Boston University as a leading private research university focused on research excellence and outstanding, innovative residential undergraduate and graduate education that prepares students for the evolving, global world of work.
  • Strengthen interconnectedness across disciplines to create novel approaches in research and teaching, leading to bold discoveries and research impact.
  • Be a leader in the utilization of state-of-the-art remote, digital, and online technologies to enhance our in-person programs and expand our educational reach.
  • Become an even more diverse and inclusive institution in which individuals can find their communities and thrive, and lead in social and racial justice scholarly work.

Part of and integral to this strategic vision for the University are the five strategic priorities that will be emphasized in order to achieve our vision for Boston University.
