Founded in 1880, Emerson College is an independent, nonprofit institution of higher education chartered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. It is governed by a self-elected Board of Trustees and administered by a President and other officers approved by the Trustees. A Board of Advisors provides the Administration with advice, counsel, and support.
Located in the heart of Boston's Theatre District and across from the iconic Boston Common, Emerson's campus stands at the city's crossroads. With unparalleled access to internships, museums, hospitals, theaters, and countless cultural experiences, there is never a shortage of new students' experiences.
Located on Sunset Boulevard, this cutting-edge facility serves as the College's home on the West Coast. Undergraduate students can take classes in the heart of LA, hold a semester-long internship at a site related to their field of study, and engage with industry leaders both on and off-campus. Graduate students in the MFA in Writing for Film and Television spend time in the low-residency program, and Professional Studies programs provide an opportunity for working individuals to expand their skills or explore new interests.
Keeping in mind that, in Stéphane Mallarmé's words, "to define is to destroy to suggest is to create," and keeping in mind that spirit is often intangible and fresh, the "spirit of Emerson" will not be tightly defined. However, to give guidance to the Committee, this working definition of "the spirit of Emerson" will serve as a touchstone for the selection process for the Award recipient.
The Spirit of Emerson is a joyous outpouring of Emerson College's activities, interpersonal relations, creations, diversity, and expression, including the spirit of all stated in Emerson's mission statement, President Pelton's five strategic objectives, our legacy, motto, or/and "E- spirit." E-spirit is electric, innovative energy in thought and creation in the E-age, in which "E" stands simultaneously for "electric" and "Emerson."
The Spirit of Emerson also includes the deliberate honoring and acknowledging of those who do exude such spirit. The Spirit of Emerson Committee is now calling for nominations for the 2017 Spirit of Emerson Award. The Award will be given annually to no more than two individuals or groups of individuals each year who have exemplified the College spirit as determined by the Committee.
