Announcing an Interim VP of Marketing and Communications

Dear Emerson community,

I am pleased to announce that Michelle Gaseau has accepted my invitation to serve as interim Vice President of Marketing and Communications, a role that is crucial for our community. Her appointment is effective immediately and will continue until the permanent position is filled.

As interim vice president, Michelle will lead the Marketing, Communications, and Web & Digital Services teams in telling Emerson’s stories, both internally and to the wider world. She will also collaborate with departments across the College to unify messaging and dissemination, and serve on the President’s Council, where her insights and advice will be vital.

Michelle has served as Interim Executive Director of Communications since last fall, a role in which she has led Communications, Marketing, and Web & Digital, working to build a collaborative and dynamic department. Prior to that, she was Senior Director of Strategic Communications and Media Relations, overseeing all central internal communications, public relations, crisis communications, campus news, and Expression magazine. She joined Emerson in 2017 as Director of Media Relations after working in communication leadership roles at both Lasell College and MIT.

She holds a Master’s degree in Journalism from Boston University and a Bachelor’s in English Literature from Drew University. She has served on various boards and organizations at Boston University and within the city.

I am grateful to her for her indispensable advice and willingness to take on this position. Please join me in congratulating and thanking Michelle for this recognition.


Jay Bernhardt
