Managing For Excellence
Co-sponsored by Human Resources and the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, Managing For Excellence is an annual professional development series which will form the basis of a community of practice for managers at Emerson College. Through this program, managers can learn best practices, discover tools, and practice solutions in a cross-functional, inclusive environment. Human Resources will ask for applications each year.
Leadership at Emerson

This program brings together Emerson leaders from across the community to focus on developing individual leadership capability, building a leadership community, and fostering leadership best practices across the Emerson Community. Human Resources will distribute a notification when nominations are being collected for the next course.

President's Book Club
Sponsored by the President’s Office and coordinated in collaboration between Human Resources and the Iwasaki Library, the President’s Book Club offers an opportunity for Emerson faculty and staff to come together to discuss a book of their choosing over the course of a semester. The book club is split into two sections – fiction and non-fiction. Members meet 1-2 times a semester during lunchtime to discuss the book. The 2014 spring semester book club has already been formed, but a new invitation to participate will be extended to the community each semester. For the 2014 spring semester, the fiction and non-fiction groups will be reading The Good Lord Bird by James McBride and Book of Ages: The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin by Jill Lepore, respectively.
