People of color make up approximately half of US public school students, but only 18 percent of teachers, according to a 2016 report.

Boston University School of Education's partnership with EdRising is working to diversify their own students in hopes of closing the growing gap between the diversity of educators in US schools and the diversity of the students they serve.

Happy new year to the Terrier community far & wide!
We're looking forward to an even better 2017 here at BU!
Our number one moment of 2016? Taking in the magical change of seasons in this incredible city we're lucky to call home!
What do the top 9 photos on our Instagram from 2016 all have in common? They captured some seriously BU-tiful weather! From stunning Comm. Ave sunsets to the autumn's brilliant foliage and our first snowfall, these were the images that stunned Terriers this year.
Our number 2 moment in the #BUin2016 countdown:
In advance of their World Series, Rhett sent some dirt from Nickerson Field to the Cleveland Indians for good luck, which went on display at Progressive Field!

The Indians' last World Series win came on the field (formerly Braves Field) in 1948. With their loss to the Chicago Cubs this year, that record still stands.
Number 3 on our 2016 countdown includes enhancing our sustainability efforts on campus. After surpassing our goal of obtaining 20% of our food from sustainable sources this year, Boston University Dining Services announced a new goal of 25% by 2020.
2016 also saw immeasurable loss with the death of our beloved Elie Wiesel (Hon.'74). The somber occasion provided an opportunity to reflect on his legacy: “He did not just describe the past—although that alone would have been a profound service," said BU President Robert Brown. "Because of his erudition and his compassion, he taught us how to live in ways that overcome hate."
