HOW EMORY WORKS
Emory prepares to welcome Class of 2021
As first-year students move into residence halls this weekend, they will be greeted by hundreds of staff and fellow students who devote thousands of hours to help them feel at home on Emory's Atlanta and Oxford campuses.

 

EVENTS
Solar eclipse adds cosmic spin to Emory orientation
On Monday, a total solar eclipse will sweep the United States. Although Atlanta lies just beyond the path of totality, Emory's Class of 2021 will get to experience a nearly total eclipse while attending campus orientation. Find out about viewing options on Emory's Atlanta and Oxford campuses.

 

LEADERSHIP
Emory president issues statement regarding Charlottesville
"The recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, serve as a stark reminder that although we have made tremendous advances in civil and human rights, we have work to do," President Claire E. Sterk states in a message to the Emory community.

 

COLLABORATION
Emory enjoys unique, longtime partnership with Georgia Tech
The bio-research partnership between Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology has produced biomedical discoveries for decades, one of the most dramatic being the recent successful human clinical trial of a microneedle patch for flu vaccines.

 

INTERNATIONAL
Online course connects Emory undergraduates in global internships
Working this summer in companies around the world, students came together through a linguistics course to analyze and compare their experiences -- a model of how Emory constructs online classes.

 

INNOVATION
New events spark creativity across Emory's Finance Division
From invitations to create art to events that pair financial reporting with beer and wine tasting, a new initiative encourages creative approaches within Emory's Finance Division.

 

THEOLOGY
Kessler Collection at Candler's Pitts Theology Library marks 30 years
A fall exhibit at Candler's Pitts Theology Library will highlight the library's renowned Kessler Reformation Collection, recognizing the collection's 30th anniversary as well as the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

CONSTRUCTION
End in sight for Clifton Streetscape Project
Begun in early June 2016, the Clifton Streetscape Project is nearing completion. The past 15 months have seen dramatic changes improving access, pedestrian safety and aesthetics.
