With yesterday’s announcement in BU Today about Provost Morrison’s creation of a new BU Campus-Wide Arts Initiative, I am thrilled that we now have the mandate and the structure to enhance the role of the arts at Boston University for the benefit of all our students.
The spirit of the initiative is to insure that all BU students, regardless of major, enrich their lives with diverse artistic experiences.
As you will read in the article, I will be joining with a small group of colleagues across campus to come up with a plan to bring this initiative to life.
Once the committee meets and begins its work, I will be happy to keep you up to date on our progress. The timeline is tight, as the Provost has asked for a first plan by the end of this semester.
In the meantime, if you have ideas or comments you’d like to share, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
