Engage with the World Around You
We prepare the global leaders of tomorrow. Here, you’ll find an immersive, international, and civically minded academic experience, bolstered by community engagement initiatives like:
- The Elma Lewis Center for Civic Engagement, Learning, and Research, part of the larger Social Justice Center at Emerson, which seeks to uplift communities and develop a culture of civic mindedness and civic action.
- Emerson Contemporary, the College’s platform for showcasing contemporary visual art via multidisciplinary exhibitions, public programming, and events that feature artists who examine social themes and current topics through diverse practices.
- Pipeline programs for Boston-area youth—like EmersonWRITES, an urban creative writing lab offering free college-style workshops to students in grades 8–12 enrolled in a Greater Boston public or charter school.
- The Engagement Lab, our applied research lab, which produces creative interactive solutions to local, national, and international civic problems through engaged research, academic collaborations, and partnerships with external organizations.
