LEADERSHIP
President Wagner: Steward of the vision
Emory University President James W. Wagner concludes an extraordinary 13-year tenure characterized by an unwavering commitment to excellence.

 

SUPPORT
Mrs. President: Partnership shines in Emory traditions
From hosting Halloween at Lullwater to hoisting boxes on Move-In Day, Debbie Wagner has made Emory her home and the community part of her family.

 

TECHNOLOGY
Blackboard to be replaced with Canvas learning platform
After a successful two-semester pilot program during the 2015-2016 academic year, Emory University will switch from Blackboard to the Canvas learning management system.

 

SCHOLARSHIP
Undergraduate researcher creates a musical archive
Ryan Sutherland graduated earlier this month with a double major in music and biology, but he leaves something important behind at Emory: an archive based on ethnomusicology research he conducted here and in Indonesia.

 

OUTREACH
Initiative aims to find undiscovered mathematicians
Emory professor Ken Ono served as an adviser to "The Man Who Knew Infinity," a film about Indian genius Srinivasa Ramanujan and the British mathematician who mentored him. Led by Ono, "The Spirit of Ramanujan Math Talent Initiative" seeks to spark similar collaborations.

PUBLIC HEALTH
Vanquishing the dragon: Guinea worm eradication
When President Jimmy Carter, Emory University Distinguished Professor, took up the fight against Guinea worm in the mid-1980s, there were an estimated 3.5 million cases a year in 21 endemic countries. Last year, only 22 people in four countries suffered from the "fiery serpent." It may soon become the first parasitic disease to be eradicated.

 

ENVIRONMENT
Emory to launch $1.5 million Sustainability Revolving Fund
Emory's new Sustainability Revolving Fund is a self-replenishing program that will be used to fund capital-intensive energy and water efficiency projects across campus.

 

HISTORY
SCLC/W.O.M.E.N. records now open to the public at Emory
The records of the SCLC/Women's Organizational Movement for Equality Now, Inc. are available in the Rose Library. Founded in Atlanta in 1979, the group focused on the needs of women and families, including early work to address HIV.

 

RESEARCH
New maps show where gay, bisexual men face greatest risk for HIV
In the United States, the burden of HIV is disproportionately high for men who have sex with men. New analyses by Emory researchers will help target prevention and health care services where they are needed most.

 

ACTIVITIES
Campus fills up for summer events
Just as the excitement of Commencement begins to wane, Emory gears up to host a lively lineup of summer camps, conferences, classes and other events.

PROFILE
Harry Rusche: Reflecting on a half century of teaching
A pioneer in computer-assisted instruction with a passion for collecting postcards, English professor Harry Rusche has never wavered in finding new ways to link his love of language to his drive to inspire students.

Quote

 

"As we enter the space of a poem, you enter the space understanding, 'Oh, this is going to change me.' We want from art the same thing we want from God and we want from prayer. We want to be different after we have the interaction with God. So you enter it knowing it is going to change you."
Jericho Brown, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 22, 2016
