Emerson students are independent-minded artists and communicators who explore daring ideas. They never stop creating, even after class is over. Day in and day out, students use their skills, talents, and strengths to push boundaries, advocate for social change, and create memorable productions that challenge and inspire.
Student Engagement and Leadership is dedicated to helping students find resources and join organizations on campus, commit to personal growth, and serve our community. Through leadership training, civic engagement, student organizations, and fraternity and sorority life, we aim to give you the tools and resources you need to become an active part of campus life.
College is a time filled with many changes, transition, excitement, and challenges. Most students, at one time or another, experience various personal, emotional, and/or interpersonal concerns. During these times, it can help to reach out for support from friends, family, academic advisors, spiritual supports, and professional counseling. At ECAPS, we strive to help students build on strengths and address these concerns in ways that allow them to make the best of their college experience. We offer free and confidential individual, couples, and group counseling, as well as consultation and workshops.
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.
