A Message from Emmanuel College President Mary K. Boyd, Ph.D.

Welcome to a Place of Pure Possibility

President Mary K. Boyd, Ph.D.

On behalf of our community of students, faculty, and staff—and our worldwide family of alumni—I am delighted to welcome you to Emmanuel College.

The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur who opened Emmanuel in 1919 believed passionately in the power of a liberal arts and sciences education to transform young lives. Here generations of students have forged enduring friendships while preparing for lives of purpose, achievement, and service to others.

Today, we are fulfilling our Catholic educational mission with unprecedented impact. One reason is our location: We stand at the doorstep of leading businesses, nonprofits and cultural institutions, along with some of Boston’s—and the world’s—leading centers of clinical care and biomedical research. By engaging in internships and other field experiences, our students learn to apply knowledge in real-world settings, gain valuable professional connections, and prepare for success in a host of careers, including some yet to be imagined.

If you are a prospective student or a parent of one—or if you are a graduate who has not returned recently—I invite you to visit us here in the city’s booming Fenway neighborhood. Take a tour of our campus, with its modern science center, nursing education space, art studios, gymnasium, and 18-story apartment-style residence hall. Meet the mentors and champions who make up our distinguished faculty. Catch the warm, authentic, and inclusive spirit of our community. And step into a place and time of pure possibility.

We look forward to seeing you here in the Heart of Boston!

Mary K. Boyd, Ph.D. Signature
