Supporting Our Community: Available Resources and Assistance

Dear Emerson Community,

This past week has presented significant challenges that have affected all of us deeply. The recent arrests at the encampment are not merely numbers; they are individual students, classmates, friends, peers, loved ones. Without a doubt, this is a profoundly difficult moment for our community.

As the academic year draws to a close, we recognize that many of you may find this time particularly stressful, compounded further by recent events. We want to assure you that Campus Life and the Division of Student Affairs are committed to supporting every student impacted. Whether you were directly involved in the protests, affected by the aftermath, or facing emotional, financial, or academic difficulties, our doors are open to you.

Lost Items: Staff were able to collect and save some of the items left behind in the alleyway from April 25. If you are missing an item that you may have left behind, please go to 172 Tremont St. and inquire about it. Items will be stored in 172 Tremont until 12pm (noon) on Friday, May 3.
