Dear members of the Emerson community:
On Friday, December 17, 2021, college officials became aware of a social media post reporting antisemitic behavior in a classroom. The report is currently being addressed by the relevant College offices charged with responding to such incidents.
Antisemitism and other forms of hate and intolerance violate Emerson’s stated values of inclusiveness and equal treatment. The College is committed to addressing any reports of antisemitism, as well as other forms of racism and oppression. Rest assured we acknowledge that any behavior that is insensitive to, or belittles, the trauma experienced by Jewish individuals and others during the Holocaust is unacceptable.
