Leadership & Planning

President’s Welcome

Sr. Janet EisnerI welcome you to Emmanuel College! At Emmanuel, everything we do—every decision, every initiative, every investment—is animated by the joyful belief that "education is the greatest work on earth." We celebrate this conviction whenever we see students' lives transformed and whenever we witness our graduates advancing a more just and peaceful world.

Emmanuel stands in the heart of Boston—at the intersection of the 2,000-year-old Catholic intellectual tradition and tomorrow's top careers. Here faculty engage students in a rigorous liberal arts and sciences curriculum, challenging them to think imaginatively and critically and to express themselves with power and precision. Throughout our thriving global city, students intern with leading organizations in business, finance, media, science and the law.

Our students also collaborate with faculty on original scholarship and research, gaining exceptional preparation for graduate school and a wide range of professions. Through more than 100 co-curricular activities and organizations, students grow as scholars, artists, volunteers and athletes while forming relationships that last a lifetime.

If you are a prospective student or a parent of one—or if you are an alumnus/a who has not returned recently—I invite you to visit us. Take a tour of our multimedia classrooms, state-of-the-art science laboratories and new 18-story, apartment-style residence hall. Feel the closeness and spirit of our community. See how our dedication to mission, ethics and values lends unique depth to the Emmanuel experience and prepares women and men for lives of leadership and of profound purpose.
