MISSION STATEMENT:

The Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground preserves Dr. Howard Thurman’s legacy of breaking barriers of divisiveness by inspiring Boston University’s students to discover their shared humanity through programs and events designed to expand their intellectual, social, and spiritual growth and foster their development of meaningful and authentic friendships.

VISION:

Dr. Howard Thurman believed that the search for common ground is a two-fold journey of personal self-exploration and of building community, and that “…meaningful and creative shared experiences between people can be more compelling than all of the faiths, fears, concepts and ideologies that separate them. And, if these experiences can be multiplied and sustained over a sufficient duration of time, then any barrier that separates one person from another can be undermined and eliminated.” The Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground seeks to make those meaningful and creative shared experiences happen for Boston University students.
