Statement from the Emerson College Board of Trustees

The Emerson College Board of Trustees remains confident in President Bernhardt’s leadership and unequivocally supports his presidency. Our role as a board requires that we consider both short-term and long-term perspectives on college needs. This includes listening to the Emerson community and assuring that its priorities are reflected in the College’s strategic direction.

We have received the votes of the Faculty Assembly and the Affiliated Faculty, and the board respects the faculty’s right to express their views. President Bernhardt’s approach to recent events reinforced to the board that he is a strong leader who can address the college’s long-term operational needs and a compassionate leader who can rebuild the faculty, staff, and student relationships necessary to bring us together in challenging times.  We urge the Emerson community to come together in a spirit of collaboration to address the challenges we face.
