The mission of Student Success, Access, and Belonging is to provide holistic support to all students and empower them to persist to the completion of their educational goals. Through interdepartmental partnerships, faculty/staff/alumni mentorship, and intentional cohort-based experiences, offerings, and programs, we will work to create a supportive environment where students develop the confidence and knowledge to thrive and succeed.
Specifically, our resources focus on supporting first-generation, low-income, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, veteran, and transfer students so they can be successful both within the Emerson community and beyond. We also continue to explore ways to support all students and guide them to the resources they need during their time at Emerson.
