To the Emmanuel College Community:

The College’s senior administration has been closely monitoring updates on the rapidly changing novel coronavirus outbreak worldwide. Cases of this respiratory disease, first identified in China, are being diagnosed in increasing numbers in other countries, mostly notably in South Korea, Italy and Japan. As students, faculty and staff are preparing for travel during the College’s upcoming spring break, we are tracking daily the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State Department, and the Boston Public Health Commission. To that end, it is possible in the coming days that changes will need to be made to plans for college-sponsored travel programs, particularly ones with overseas itineraries. The College is also working closely with study abroad partners to monitor the safety of students currently studying internationally.

While the risk for residents of Boston is currently very low, with only one confirmed case of novel coronavirus in Massachusetts, the College encourages vigilance in terms of protecting your health, particularly for those who have traveled to an affected area recently. It is important for all members of the community to:

  • recognize the symptoms of illness, which can include a high fever, cough, and difficulty breathing
  • seek care and immediately notify the College if you have recently traveled within the affected region and are experiencing these symptoms
  • always practice good hygiene, wash hands, cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid sharing food, cups or utensils
  • get a flu shot, which is having a positive effect this year; while the flu shot does not protect from this particular virus, it is recommended that all members of the Emmanuel community be vaccinated

Any member of the Emmanuel community who has traveled from China or an international location where there is substantial, sustained transmission of coronavirus within the past 14 days and is experiencing symptoms such as those described above should immediately contact the Director of Health Services Lauren Davis at

The offices of Student Affairs and Human Resources will be reaching out to all students, faculty and staff to gather information on upcoming non-college sponsored travel plans. Following spring break, new protocols may be in place, depending on the latest developments and recommendations of national and local agencies.

Join us for an information session on the new Legal Studies Minor

Thursday, February 27 12:15-1:30 p.m.

Room 435, Eisner Administration Building

Emmanuel’s minor in legal studies offers an interdisciplinary look at the workings of the law—from the judicial system and legal reform to issues of justice and injustice from political, philosophical and sociological perspectives. Scholarship of legal studies upholds the College’s mission of greater social, economic, and political justice, to all of which study of the law is critical. This minor is ideal for students in any major who are interested in and would benefit from an introduction to the legal system and related public policy issues.

The Muddy River Restoration Project Maintenance and Management Oversight Committee (the MMOC) and the Muddy River Restoration Project Cabinet cordially invite the public to

The Muddy River Project - Climate Resilience Through Green Infrastructure

Thursday, February 27th, 5:30-8 p.m., Emmanuel College Auditorium

The Muddy River and its parklands, part of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace, are undergoing a major restoration. Thanks to Phase 1 of the Restoration Project, a key section of the River has been restored as an open-air watercourse with new culverts and bridges created at the Riverway and Brookline Avenue.

Join us to learn the latest about Phase 2 of the project from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Town of Brookline and the City of Boston. Presentations will address the Muddy River restoration, the Carlton Street Footbridge Rehabilitation and improvements to the Muddy River parks. Speakers will also describe how, as it restores a key green environment, the project has become an important component of local municipal plans for climate resilience.

Like many college campuses across the nation, Emmanuel College faces the problem of food insecurity – the infrequent access to nutritious food – within its student body. In order to begin addressing this issue, a collaboration of students, faculty and staff have developed the Swipe-It-Forward program. This program enables students, faculty and staff to “donate” meals, making them available for students in need.

Students can donate up to a predetermined number of meal swipes from their own meal plans, while faculty and staff may make monetary donations to an online “bank”. Students who self-identify as food insecure may request up to 5 meal swipes from this bank per semester, which may be spent at any Bon Appetit operation at Emmanuel College that accepts meal swipes.
