ENGAGEMENT
Community input sought for launch of Emory's new master plan
What should Emory look like in the future? An online survey and four campus town halls this week seek community insight as the university starts creating a new master plan, which will help provide a roadmap to plan for future facilities and digital investments.

 

EVENTS

RESEARCH

In "One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy," Emory historian Carol Anderson asserts that many of the efforts employed to impede black voters in the Jim Crow South are still being used successfully today.
