At Emerson College, we know there is joy in the work of equity, access, and social justice (EASJ). We strive to create an institutional culture that is inspiring and exuberant. We believe in co-creating a learning and working environment that is equity-centered where people can find authentic community, engage in authentic growth, and be their authentic selves.
Across Emerson and beyond, students, faculty, staff, alumni, institutional leadership, and community-based partners and organizations work together to grow in knowledge and empathy about the impact of systemic bias. We are committed to using that understanding to interrogate and address policies and practices that reinforce structural oppression in U.S. and global society, or exclude and diminish members of our community.
Diversity is our strength and inspiration. Embedded within every department, program, and field of study is a deep appreciation and commitment to learning from one another. We center joy, creativity, and self-expression as we grow into our values of equity, access, and social justice every day.
