Postponement of 2021 University Lecture to Spring 2022

From Dr. Jean Morrison, University Provost and Chief Academic Officer

As you know, BU each fall hosts the University Lecture. The lecture was to be delivered this coming Wednesday, November 10, at the Tsai Performance Center by Professor Louis Chude-Sokei of the College of Arts & Sciences. Due to an unforeseen circumstance, we will need to postpone this event until the spring 2022 semester.

The interest this event and Professor Chude-Sokei’s presentation on race and technology have generated among the BU and greater Boston communities has been truly extraordinary. The University Lecture is among our most prestigious and widely attended events each year, showcasing the timely scholarship of a faculty member whose work is having tangible societal impact.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and will be communicating directly with those of you who have RSVP’d for the event. We look forward to sharing a new date for the lecture in the near future.
