about us


POWER was created in the wake of the Spring 2015 student walkout at the last faculty meeting of the 2014–2015 school year to to address the apparent and overwhelming need for increased cultural competency amongst Emerson community members.

fundamentally, we exist to keep our community accountable for issues of diversity, inclusion and social justice.

POWER is overseen by two co-chairs and comprised senators for each of Emerson's academic departments, as well as senators for accessibility and interdisciplinary programs, and two POWER correspondents.
