Provost’s Statement on Diversity
Central to the Boston University experience is a student and faculty community reflective of the world around it. So much of our institutional strength throughout history has derived from an environment that at once celebrates academic rigor and inclusiveness to individuals of all backgrounds, creeds, cultures and beliefs. Today, BU is proud to boast a diverse, truly global campus community – a vibrant intellectual hub of students and faculty representing every ethnicity and orientation and more than 140 countries around the world.
Simply put, each of us is more complete for the connections we build with classmates and colleagues of backgrounds different from our own, for the unique perspectives, ideas and experiences they bring to our campuses, and for the commitment we all share for excellence in research and scholarship.
— Jean Morrison, University Provost and Chief Academic Officer
