Concerns may include: temporary disability accommodations, needing academic accommodations due to recent head injury, trouble getting around campus, recent head injury causing problems.
Our mission is to provide quality accessible health care for students, sponsor programs that promote healthy choices, and enhance our campus community. The Center provides a range of health and wellness services and programs to meet the needs of Emerson College students.
The Student Care and Support Office receives referrals from students, faculty, staff, etc. about students of concern. The Office works with key partners on campus to provide support for those students with a goal of helping them succeed academically and personally.
While students are expected to attend class regularly and should consult their class syllabus regarding specific absence policies for each class, sometimes unforeseen circumstances happen! On this web page you can fill out an online form asking for Student Care and Support/Student Success to reach out to your faculty on your behalf if you are navigating extenuating circumstances.
Emerson College offers 14 NCAA Division III teams in various men’s and women’s sports, and more than 200 student-athletes represent the College in intercollegiate competition. The Emerson Lions routinely qualify for post-season tournament appearances.
In addition to competitive sports, Emerson also offers intramural, recreational, and fitness opportunities. All students enjoy a free membership to the on-campus Fitness Center, which offers group classes and state-of-the-art training equipment.
If you are an athlete and concerned about academics, there are specialists in the Lacerte Family Writing and Academic Resource Center (WARC) and Academic Advising that can help you - you can look up those resources for their contact information!
Student Accessibility Services (SAS), formerly the Disability Services Office, strives to create an inclusive campus environment for students, allowing them to have full access to courses, programs, and activities during their time at Emerson College. We coordinate accommodations and support services that promote equal access for undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities.
Students may encounter obstacles or difficulties associated with college life—academic, financial, personal, interpersonal, or wellness—or simply seek greater connection and support. Emerson has fantastic resources designed to address the holistic needs of students.
The Office of Student Success helps students to explore their options, navigate campus systems, and connect to services, supports, and each other. And sometimes, we just listen.
The Healing and Advocacy Collective offers confidential support and advocacy-based counseling for people impacted by power-based interpersonal violence, “including abusive relationships and bullying, stalking and threats, sexual assault and harassment, child abuse and neglect, and additional experiences. In addition, we work with individuals and groups to increase knowledge and education about:
- Power and Control
- Bystander intervention
- Transforming relationships and culture
- Trauma-informed yoga
and more to create community change.
As a part of the Social Justice Center, we see the ways that power-based interpersonal violence is interconnected with other forms of violence, harm, and injustice. We believe that we must collectively work together to address the larger structural roots of violence, discrimination, and oppression.
We are committed to engaging in this work drawing from the lens of joy and liberation, as we envision a world where all communities are committed to community-building, radical care, and justice.
