Overall, students who took the survey are fairly representative of the college overall, in terms of class year and race.

Students nearly unanimously said diversity and inclusion were important values, but faulted the college for having an insufficiently diverse staff.

Among undergraduates, each older class felt less satisfied with the sexual harrassment and assault prevention training that Emerson provided.

More than any other undergraduate class, freshmen were satisfied with their understanding of Emerson’s policies dealing with sexual assault, and believed their training would actually be effective.

Across the college, 50 percent or fewer of students believed that Emerson would support their peers who file sexual assault reports, take corrective action against offenders, and administer policies fairly.

Students identifying as black or African-American consistently reported having less of a sense of belonging than students of other racial and ethnic groups

Students said they felt their professors were fair, and that Emerson provided adequate support to succeed academically.

Like students, faculty and staff consistently said diversity and inclusion were important personal values. However, they were more satisfied than students about the diversity of Emerson’s employees.

Fewer than half of employees said they felt they were paid fairly for their work. Professors gave notably lower responses about the college’s benefits compared to staff and administrators.

Few employees were satisifed with staffing levels, but professors were particularly unhappy with their facilities.
