I am pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award and the Faculty Excellence in Service to the Community Award.

Janese Free, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Sociology, is the 2022 recipient of the Emmanuel College Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award.

Sister Janet Eisner, SNDdeN, President

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Emmanuel College, I am most pleased to announce that Sister Janet Eisner, SNDdeN, the country’s longest-serving woman college president, will deliver the Commencement Address at the College’s 100th Commencement Exercises on Saturday, May 14th. Sister Janet’s selection as speaker is especially fitting this year, following her recent announcement that she will conclude her historic presidency in 2022. To further recognize her extraordinary impact on Emmanuel and on generations of graduates, the College will confer on Sister Janet an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree. In addition, the College will confer an honorary doctorate on Dr. Maura Hagan ’75, a nationally recognized space physicist whose contributions to science exemplify the values of achievement and service that are at the core of Emmanuel’s Catholic educational mission.

Sister Janet Eisner, SNDdeN – President of Emmanuel College

Inaugurated in 1979, Sister Janet’s 43 years as president are a testament to her unwavering convictions about community, faith, service, and the transformative power of education. Throughout her tenure, her creativity and talent for reinvention have earned her the respect of business, university and church leaders throughout Boston and far beyond, along with the affection of Emmanuel’s worldwide family. In 2019, the College’s Centennial year, the Boston Globe described Sister Janet as “Emmanuel’s second founder” in recognition of her transformative leadership.

Maura Hagan ’75 – Professor Emeritus of Physics, Utah State University

Dr. Hagan received her Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Emmanuel College in 1975 and went on to receive her master’s degree and Ph.D. from Boston College in 1980 and 1987 respectively. Dr. Hagan served as a researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Haystack Observatory prior to joining the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in 1992, where she spent more than 20 years as a scientist and administrator. In 2006 she was part of a team that identified the first global connection between space weather and weather on Earth. In 2019, Dr. Hagan was one of 100 U.S. scientists elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Hagan served as Dean of the College of Science at Utah State University from 2015 until her retirement in 2020.

The Class of 2022

This year’s graduates of the Class of 2022 hold the distinction of being Emmanuel College’s 100th graduating class. We look forward, in a special way, to celebrating their achievements and to welcoming all our esteemed guests to campus for this historic occasion.


Sr. Anne M. Donovan, SNDdeN, Vice President of Finance/Treasurer & Trustee
