Friday, April 14, 2023 Emmanuel College Campus, Boston
Gather with us to welcome Emmanuel College’s 13th president and reflect on Emmanuel’s distinctive role in the life of Boston and in Catholic higher education. In 1919, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur established the college to provide an outstanding liberal arts and sciences education, and that legacy remains vibrant and relevant today.
