Celebrating achievement, community involvement

Last week was very busy, yet exciting and uplifting, as I participated in many end-of-the-academic-year celebrations of student achievement and community involvement. The week’s events culminated with Alumni Weekend and the annual Alumni Awards Dinner on Saturday, where we honored eight graduates for significant contributions to their professions or the university.

The celebration continues this week, starting with Sunday’s annual Scholarship Luncheon. Dozens of our best students had the opportunity to personally meet and thank the benefactors who provided their scholarships. It is a wonderful event where alumni and friends of BU can see firsthand how their scholarships make it possible for our students to pursue degrees that lead to professional and personal success.

There are so many opportunities to congratulate and celebrate with our high-achieving students that Provost Ira Blake and I coordinate our schedules to ensure at least one of us attends each event.

 After all, student achievement is at the heart of all we do, and neither of us wants to miss the chance to applaud our successful students.

This week, I will participate in the following:
And next week, after finals are completed, we will continue to celebrate with graduate commencement Friday, May 8, at 7 p.m. in Haas Center for the Arts, and undergraduate commencement Saturday, May 9, at 8:30 a.m., noon and 3:30 p.m. on the Academic Quad.
