A Conversation with BU's New President

This article is more than 13 years old.

Boston University formally inaugurates its 10th president today. Robert Brown is formerly the provost of MIT. He was selected to lead BU last June, and took office in September.

He came to the university after a tumultuous time: former NASA administrator Dan Goldin had been picked for the presidency in 2003. But he resigned after a conflict with the university trustees and before he ever took office.

Bob Oakes sat down with Robert Brown before today's inauguration.

This program aired on April 27, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
