What’s in a Name?

The Office of Service Learning and Community Action has changed its name! It is now the Office of Academic Engagement and Community Action (AECA). Civic engagement, global engagement, and academic excellence are three pillars within Emerson College’s strategic plan. Since applying for and receiving the 2015 Carnegie Classification for community engagement, the Office has broadened its scope to represent the College’s ongoing commitment to bolster both service learning pedagogy and the scholarship of engagement here. The AECA will continue to work in conjunction with Academic Affairs to be a convener, a connector, and a catalyst in these areas for community members, faculty, students, staff, and alums.
