The work of the Division of Student Affairs is guided by the belief that intellectual and personal development are inseparable and that a healthy and caring campus environment is essential to the growth of the whole student.

Student Affairs advances Emerson College’s mission by providing a wide range of purposeful out-of-classroom experiences and services that encourage student learning and foster a sense of community. Students are challenged to think critically and support community standards within an environment where the principles of freedom of expression, civility, diversity, fairness, and caring are valued and affirmed.

All offices are open Monday–Friday, 8:45 am–5:00 pm, unless otherwise indicated.
