HOW EMORY WORKS
Inside the Emory Steam Plant
With five massive boilers, a central control room and six miles of underground pipes, Emory's Steam Plant is the heart of the University's heating system, providing 360-degree steam to 55 buildings on campus. Find out how a dedicated team of six employees works in shifts around the clock to keep Emory warm.

 

RANKINGS
Emory ranks No. 15 in the world for best student-staff ratio
Emory University ranks No. 15 on a new list of the world's top 100 universities with the best student-staff ratio. Compiled by Times Higher Education, the 2016 ranking includes 800 universities from 70 different countries.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS
Bobby Jones scholars announced for yearlong study in Scotland
Four exceptional Emory College seniors have been chosen as this year's recipients of the Robert T. Jones Scholarships, enabling them to study topics ranging from health care to sustainable development to art history at the University of St. Andrews.

 

ENGAGEMENT
Website seeks feedback on responses to racial justice demands
In a message to the Emory community, Ajay Nair, dean of Campus Life, invites feedback on possible solutions to demands set forth by the Black Students of Emory movement. A special website, Dialogue at Emory, has been created to engage the community in the process.

 

FIRST PERSON
Behind the curtain of the Academy's old boys' club
The Oscars air Sunday evening, under fire once again for a lack of diversity among nominees. Eddy Von Mueller of Emory's Department of Film and Media Studies explains why fixing the inequities of the Academy Awards will require addressing problems across the movie industry.

 

HEALTH CARE
Healing the invisible wounds of modern warfare
The invisible wounds that injured soldiers struggle with have devastating long-term consequences on their health, yet too often they have difficulty seeking and getting timely and effective care. The Emory Veterans Program aims to change that.

 

THEOLOGY
Johnson's 'The Real Jesus' changed historical Jesus debates
Twenty years ago, Emory's Luke Timothy Johnson was in the right place at the right time. His 1996 book, "The Real Jesus," became a blockbuster of the Lenten season, making the kind of national media splash that biblical scholars can only dream of today.

 

EVENTS
March calendar includes readings, concerts, films and more
Amber Dermont, author of the New York Times bestselling novel "The Starboard Sea," visits Emory on March 24, part of a diverse slate of arts events scheduled for next month.
