BU president to appear before council on diversity
BOSTON (AP) — Boston University president Robert Brown has agreed to appear before the city council later this month to discuss diversity at the school.
Brown had been subpoenaed to testify on Tuesday before the council’s Education Committee after the university answered an initial request by the council in October by submitting written testimony.
BU went to court to quash the subpoena, saying Brown was traveling and could not appear on Tuesday.
The Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/1wj5uIk) reports that after a brief court hearing on Monday, an agreement was reached that Brown would testify on Dec. 19.
Councilor Tito Jackson has called a series of hearings to examine diversity in staff and student enrollment at colleges and universities in the city.
