I am happy to announce the hiring of Emerson Loisel as an Assistant Director of Community Standards. Emerson’s first day is Friday, June 23rd. Prior to joining the University of Connecticut, Emerson was the Assistant Director of Student Activities at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). As part of his responsibilities at MICA, Emerson directed the Community Art and Service Program which included training and advising students on good practices with individuals at local community organizations utilizing principles of multi-cultural competency, racial and socio-economic justice, ethical decision-making, and professionalism. Emerson also served as a Title IX Investigator for MICA. Emerson earned his Master of Arts in Higher Education and Student Affairs from the University of Connecticut and his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Women’s and Gender Studies from the University of Vermont. While a graduate student at UConn, Emerson served as a graduate assistant in Student Activities and as a graduate practicum student in Community Standards. Emerson has completed extensive training in vicarious trauma, sexual assault investigations, and Narrative 4.
Emerson is filling the position vacated by Katie Russo who left the University to move closer to her family. On behalf of the entire Community Standards team, we want to thank Katie for her exceptional work and contributions to the University and Community Standards. She will be greatly missed.
