Dear members of the Emerson community,
I am writing on behalf of the Presidential Search Committee to share an update on the search for Emerson College’s next president. As you know, our hope was to identify a new president by the end of the academic year. After many months of working diligently with our search consultant, StorbeckSearch, we have decided to extend the search process to ensure that we identify the right person to lead our extraordinary institution.
As the search committee continues to move forward with its work, I am pleased to report that with the support of the Board of Trustees, Interim President, Dr. William (Bill) Gilligan will continue to lead the College during this period of transition. We are deeply grateful for Dr. Gilligan’s dedication and commitment to the Emerson community.
We will continue to share significant updates via email and the Emerson website: https://www.emerson.edu/presidential-search
With all best wishes for these remaining weeks of summer.
Michael MacWade, MA ‘84
Chair, Board of Trustees and the Presidential Search Committee
