Presidential Search Update

Dear members of the Emerson community:

I am writing on behalf of the Presidential Search Committee to share a few updates on the search process for Emerson College’s next president. 

Our newly reconstituted search committee has now begun its work, as part of our extended search process, to identify Emerson’s next president. The committee has already begun to interview potential candidates from an extremely strong, diverse and highly qualified pool. All candidates meet the criteria we established as part of the initial job prospectus that was created several months ago and we are encouraged that Emerson’s reputation and academic excellence have fueled interest in the presidency.

We are confident that the committee will find the right individual to lead Emerson and we are committed to continuing our search until we do.

As the search committee moves forward with this important work, please know that we are open to the views and perspectives of all of our constituencies on campus and will develop additional ways for community members to share their thoughts with the committee. We also welcome feedback on the presidential search either through the search survey or via email to

We will continue to share significant updates throughout the next several months via email and the Emerson website:

Eric Alexander ‘78
Chair, Board of Trustees and the Presidential Search Committee
