This week's show featured excerpts from the installation ceremony of Robert Cummings Neville as new Dean of Marsh Chapel and chaplain of Boston University. Present at the ceremony were Boston University Chancellor John Silber, Provost Dennis Berkey, Executive Vice President Joseph Mercurio and about 100 others.

In his remarks, Neville promised to tackle religion's "hard questions," to uphold and promote Boston University's motto of "Learning, Virtue, Piety" and attempt to form an all-ages Sunday school. Neville also pointed out that he understood the importance of keeping education free from "religious ideological control," but that the religious aspect of learning should be remembered along with secular concerns.

This program aired on September 21, 2003.
