    Emersonians from across the College comprising the Presidential Advisory Group for Community & Equity

We are committed to grow in knowledge and empathy about the nature of our nation's structural Whiteness as a caste system of power, as well as the ways in which this power is embedded in the culture at Emerson as an institution. We are committed to using that understanding to interrogate and address policies and practices that exclude, diminish, and alienate members of our community and society.  

We will continue to update Emerson’s Community Equity Action Plan as we make progress toward this commitment. Our commitment to creating a culture of equity at Emerson is only as strong as our willingness to carry out this hard work inclusively and transparently.
