Los Angeles since 1986, but has been searching for a permanent home for some time now.
M. Lee Pelton, president of Emerson College, stated the following as the three main commitments of the college: "To bring LA a unique academic experience, to become civic and cultural leaders in the community and to partner with LA industries and businesses."
