He is a member of the university’s Board of Trustees, which is a group of notable alumni and distinguished individuals who oversee university operations. You’ll likely get a few emails from Brown during the year regarding safety and other important campus happenings. You might even spot Brown strolling down Commonwealth Avenue.

Kenneth Elmore

Elmore oversees students on campus as BU’s dean of students and associate provost. He can be spotted at various student activities and is always open to chat. You can request to meet with Elmore as a representative of a student group if you want his support and guidance.
