Compass Honors Black History Month

February 16, 2021

Compass is proud and honored to have been a part of the creation of The Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground. Compass served as Owner’s Project Manager for the renovation of the building located at 808 Commonwealth Avenue, Brookline, Massachusetts that is home to the Center.

The Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground is Boston University’s cultural hub, an inclusive center that emphasizes the importance of stepping outside one’s comfort zone to build relationships and share experiences with others. A place where cultural expression in all forms are embraced and encouraged.

The Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground was founded by Dean Emeritus George K. Makechnie in 1986 to preserve and share the legacy of Dr. Howard Thurman, a man of religion, a world-renowned educator, a philosopher, a poet and Dean of Marsh Chapel at Boston University from 1953 to 1965. Dr. Thurman spent his life working to break barriers of divisiveness that separate people based on race, culture, religion, ethnicity, gender and sexual identity.
