Important Message Regarding the 2021 Spring Term

To comply with recent guidance issued by state and local officials, we have made the several changes to Emerson’s 2021 Spring Term.

Whatever our role—student, faculty, staff, administrator, parent, alum—we are One Emerson. As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we all have questions about how we will learn, create, teach, work, and socialize together. With that in mind, welcome to the one place where you can find everything you need to know to make this fall brilliant. No matter your question—How does One Emerson Flex Learning work? Where will student orgs meet? Can I wear my own gold sequined face covers?—You can find the answer here.
