Our Mission

Boston University is an international, comprehensive, private research university, committed to educating students to be reflective, resourceful individuals ready to live, adapt, and lead in an interconnected world. Boston University is committed to generating new knowledge to benefit society.

We remain dedicated to our founding principles: that higher education should be accessible to all and that research, scholarship, artistic creation, and professional practice should be conducted in the service of the wider community-local and international. These principles endure in the University's insistence on the value of diversity, in its tradition and standards of excellence, and in its dynamic engagement with the City of Boston and the world.

Through thoughtful philanthropy, you can help to ensure Boston University will continue to fulfill our mission while creating a lasting legacy. Planned gifts help to support the next generation of students from around the world gain access to a BU education, help our outstanding faculty and researchers add to the world's store of knowledge, support BU's interdisciplinary and boundary-crossing research, and provide a campus that is opportunity-rich for its students and faculty.
