HISTORY

PROFILES
Undergraduate researchers find support through SIRE
Takuya Maeda examined educational efforts about the internment of Japanese Americans. Meghan Hickey proved that trypophobia, the fear of holes, may not be a fear at all. Dalila Vazquez Herrera explored cultural barriers to health care delivery. But these diverse student projects have one thing in common: support from the Scholarly Inquiry and Research at Emory (SIRE) program.

Help when your usual childcare plans fall through: Emory subsidizes the cost of emergency back-up care so that University faculty, staff and graduate students can meet work or classroom responsibilities when unexpected breakdowns in routine care arrangements occur. Reasonably priced back-up care is available in childcare centers or in your home. Back-up care for elders or other adults is also available.

Quote

 

"This whole thing is symbolic politics. Putting women on currency is not going to change the gender pay gap and not going to change the fact that the pay gap is worse for black women and women of color."
