One of Jannet Desvira's goals early in her Emmanuel career was to become president of the Business Leaders of Emmanuel Club. She has achieved that and more—and is poised to become a business leader in the real world.
Emmanuel hosts countless student events, symposia and activities during the academic year, but none bring the entire College community together like our prominent academic events. Each event honors the academic accomplishments of our students and faculty, while celebrating Emmanuel's Catholic identity and mission of social justice and service. Furthermore, each experience provides the College community with strong opportunity to engage with esteemed speakers from a variety of fields.
Emmanuel's academic year officially kicks off with Academic Convocation in the fall and closes with the Baccalaureate Liturgy and Commencement in the spring. Throughout the year, the College hosts a variety of lectures, including the Wyant Lecture Series and the Catherine McLaughlin Hakim Lecture.
