Emerson Prison Initiative

Dear Emerson Community,

As some of you may be aware, the Boston Globe recently published an editorial regarding the College’s Emerson Prison Initiative (EPI): https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2019/02/18/offering-college-promise-those-prison/KnyOQpUJfhcasdAycacypI/story.html

EPI is an extraordinary program that reasserts Emerson’s core values and strives to fulfill higher education’s highest calling: to help the nation solve its most pressing problems. I am writing to acknowledge the extraordinary leadership of Professor Mneesha Gellman and Dean Amy Ansell for creating Emerson’s EPI. Without their dogged leadership and perspicacity, EPI would not have seen the light of day.

Cheers and bravo,
Lee
