2013-14 BU Keyword Initiative
As a member of BU's Keyword Committee, it is my joy to announce the Keyword Initiative theme chosen for academic year 2013-2014 is TRANSFORMATION.
As before, the committee invites students and colleagues from Boston University and the Greater Boston area to participate in a year of creative discussion and action on the theme of TRANSFORMATION. Collaborations are strongly encouraged as we see this work as as fine example of OneBU.
