All-School Meeting

All-School Meeting (ASM) takes place every Thursday morning during the academic year and is an essential part of the BUA program.  All-School Meetings are an opportunity for our community to come together to learn, share news and announcements, and discuss important — and sometimes challenging — issues facing our school and society at large.  ASM also captures the essence of our relationship with BU.  These weekly talks are often given by BU professors, visiting scholars, or BUA faculty, on their areas of expertise. The talks introduce students to new fields of study, the cutting-edge ideas invigorating those fields, and the passionate people behind them.  All-School meetings are open to all members of our community, including current and past parents and alumni.
