INNOVATION
Course invites students to explore 'Power of Black Self-Love'
Offered through Emory's Interdisciplinary Exploration and Scholarship (IDEAS) program, "The Power of Black Self-Love" enables students to delve into the world of public scholarship through a very personal lens.

 

BE PREPARED
How to stay informed if the weather turns severe
In the event of severe weather conditions, the university may announce delays or cancellations of normal campus activities. With winter nearing, take time to review the multiple ways you can stay informed about possible closings and delays.

 

SUSTAINABILITY
Campus sustainability projects get boost from Incentives Fund grants
From reducing waste at Emory Athletics games to building a "living wall" in the heart of first-year student housing, winners of this year's Incentives Fund grants have diverse plans to further green goals on campus.

ATHLETICS
Emory sports teams celebrate winning fall seasons
All five of Emory's fall sports teams posted winning seasons, including several trips to regional and national championship tournaments.

 

RESEARCH
Malaria math: Using big data to study malarial resistance
Malaria, the most widespread human parasitic disease, is caused by a parasite delivered via the bite of a female Anopheles mosquito. But not everyone hosting the parasite gets sick. Emory professor Mary Galinski is leading an effort to understand immune response to malaria.

 

CONSERVATION
Emory's month-long energy competition encourages engagement
Sorority Village Lodge B won the residential category in this year's energy competition, citing a 29 percent decrease in energy usage. The annual contest aims to create a culture of sustainability on campus.

TEACHING
Science writing course helps students learn to evaluate evidence
"How Do We Know That: 2,500 years of Great Science Writing" encourages students to assess the quality of evidence and learn to spot errors or manipulation -- crucial skills they can apply throughout their lives.
