The consultant firm SpencerStuart will lead a newly refined and refocused effort.
After much deliberation, the committee has determined that it is in the best interest of the College to pause the current search and relaunch it at a later date.
Our newly reconstituted search committee has now begun its work, as part of our extended search process, to identify Emerson’s next president.
As the search committee moves forward with this important work, we have reconstituted the membership based on our new timeline.
We have decided to extend the search process to ensure that we identify the right person to lead our extraordinary institution.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. William (Bill) Gilligan, Professor Emeritus, has agreed to return to Emerson as Interim President of Emerson College, effective June 1
As the search for Emerson’s next president continues, the College has created a section of the website that will provide our community with information and updates on the process.
The Presidential Search Committee has added Alixandra Bigley, Assistant General Manager of Emerson Stage, Performing Arts.
We are pleased to announce the full membership of the Presidential Search Committee, which will work collaboratively to ensure an inclusive and thorough search process for the next president of Emerson College.
As our community prepares for the transition that will follow President Pelton’s departure, the College’s Board of Trustees has been actively planning a presidential search process that will be thoughtful, thorough, and inclusive.
