Diversity on Campus
From the day you step onto campus, opportunities await. Get involved with the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs. Help bring in renowned speakers, engage in awareness events, plan the annual cultural ball, and more.
Be a part of Campus Conversations on Race; become certified and learn how to tackle the issues facing our country. Join Amigos, ASIA, EBONI, or other cultural student organizations, and meet other students with interests like yours.
Whatever direction you choose, there’s a way to channel your interests and passions into action.
“I transferred to Emerson from a small private school in California to immerse myself in a environment that promoted professional development and civic engagement. Adjusting to college is difficult, but doing it a second time 3,000 miles from your home is another thing.
But with the support of my peers and professors, I’ve been able to accomplish things I didn’t think possible. In the past five months alone, I’ve interned for a U.S. Senator, won a position in Student Government, been on the executive board for a student organization, and worked as a research assistant for a social justice initiative. The opportunities are endless at Emerson; the experience is truly what you make of it.”– Alex Castillo '12, Political Communication
