ALUMNI
Emory grads poised for musical breakthrough as The Shadowboxers
In 2008, Emory sophomores Adam Hoffman, Matt Lipkins and Scott Tyler decided to form a band. Nearly 10 years later, The Shadowboxers are working with Justin Timberlake, on the cusp of releasing what they believe will be career-changing music.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Nair named president of Arcadia University
Ajay Nair, Emory's senior vice president and dean of Campus Life, will serve as the next president of Arcadia University in Pennsylvania. Nair will remain at Emory through March 31.

 

ENGAGEMENT
Students propose solutions to problems facing migrants, refugees
For 20 Emory students, the challenges faced by the world's displaced peoples took on real-life dimensions this semester through an anthropology seminar that found them working together with migrants and refugees across four continents.

 

INNOVATION
Course puts moral issue on trial in unusual final project
Instead of a typical final paper, students taking the religion course 'Nazi Medicine on Trial' held a tribunal on whether forced sterilization is immoral, judged by experts from Emory's Center for Ethics and Office of the General Counsel.

CAMPUS
A new fuzzy face in Emory's Counseling and Psychological Services
Meet Finn, the little brother of Emory's first therapy dog, Beowulf. Expect to see this friendly fellow helping out at special events throughout the year.

 

INSIGHT
Debating the ethics of head transplants
Led by Emory experts, the official journal of the International Neuroethics Society examines the ethical questions raised by the possibility of the world's first head transplant, planned to take place in China.

 

COMMUNITY
From tiny seeds communities flourish
Thanks to a community grant from Emory's HERCULES Exposome Research Center, low-income West-side Atlanta residents have been planting food gardens in their yards. It is only one of several community outreach projects the center has funded in Atlanta.

 

HEALTH
Emory Healthcare provided $73.5 million in charity care in FY 2016-2017
During the last year, Emory Healthcare provided $73.5 million in charity care, which includes care for patients with no health insurance, not even Medicare or Medicaid, and no resources of their own.

INGENUITY
Have skull drill, will travel
"Anthropological genetics is a huge and growing field," says Kendra Sirak. The Emory graduate student has developed a specialized technique for drilling into ancient skulls to remove DNA samples.

Emory was blanketed in white Friday, Dec. 8, when a rare early December snowstorm prompted the university to close for the afternoon, reopening at noon on Saturday. While students enjoyed an unexpected break from final exams, staff leapt into action to keep roads safe and essential services running. See more photos.
