We are committed to grow in knowledge and empathy about the ways in which the power dynamics of systemic oppression are embedded in the culture at Emerson as an institution. We are committed to using that understanding to interrogate and address policies and practices that reinforce structural oppression, or 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 and accountability at Emerson is only as strong as our willingness to carry out this hard work inclusively and transparently.
We welcome all comments, questions, and feedback on our Community Equity Action Plan and website. You can always reach out to us at communityequity [at] emerson.edu.
