LEADERSHIP
Sterk named Emory's next president
The Emory University Board of Trustees announced Friday that Claire E. Sterk, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at Emory, has been selected as the University's 20th president. An internationally acclaimed public health researcher and academic leader, she was elected by a unanimous vote of the trustees.

 

HEALTH
Emory hosts summit on Ebola treatment and education
Health care providers from 10 medical centers around the U.S. spent two days sharing experiences, expertise and best practices at the National Ebola Treatment and Education Center Summit. See interviews with Ebola survivors and physicians Craig Spencer, Kent Brantly and Ian Crozier.

 

RESEARCH
Emory professors aim to measure happiness, well-being across cultures
How is it that people living in rural, poor areas of the globe can report being happier than those who live in the relative affluence of the United States? Anthropologist Peter Little and philosopher Mark Risjord seek to answer that question.

 

HUMAN RESOURCES
New overtime ruling will impact University employees
Changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act recently announced by the U.S. Department of Labor are expected to impact approximately 1,000 Emory employees, making them eligible for overtime.

CONSTRUCTION
Streetscape project to revamp Clifton Road through Emory campus
By this time next year, Clifton Road will be a wide, tree-lined corridor welcoming students, faculty, staff, patients and other visitors to Emory University and Emory Healthcare facilities, including Emory University Hospital's new J wing (pictured). Construction on the Clifton Streetscape project begins this month.

 

PARTNERSHIP
Emory collaborates with Valdosta State to train nurse-midwives in rural Georgia
Georgia has the highest maternal mortality rate and the eighth highest infant mortality rate in the country. Emory and VSU hope to help change that through Emory's new postgraduate nurse-midwifery certification, which will combine online coursework with in-person instruction by Emory faculty traveling to Valdosta.

 

PROFILE
Edie Murphree: Guiding Emory finance with integrity, tenacity
As Edie Murphree prepares to retire, having spent 11 years as vice president for finance and the last 18 months helping smooth the transition for her successor, colleagues praise her wisdom, leadership and devotion to the University.
