RESEARCH
Evidence reveals our fractured African roots
Anthropologists are challenging the long-held view that humans evolved from a single ancestral population in one region of Africa. Emory anthropologist Jessica Thompson is part of a scientific consortium that has found that human ancestors were diverse in form and culture and scattered across the continent.

 

LEADERSHIP
Why Emory embraces difficult conversations
Emory has a responsibility to foster difficult conversations and teach students to question their biases and listen thoughtfully to viewpoints different from their own, President Claire E. Sterk explains in a new video.

 

HEALTH
National Academies target opioid abuse and infectious disease consequences
A National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine workshop committee, led by Emory's Carlos del Rio, explores the rise in infectious diseases accompanying opioid abuse and strategies for reducing both.

 

SUPPORT
Emory's tobacco-free environment helps employees quit smoking
Six years ago, Emory adopted a tobacco-free policy, significantly reducing tobacco use across campus. The university offers multiple resources, from webinars and counseling to free medications, for employees who want help quitting.

 

RESOURCES
Music & Media Library gives free access to DVDs, e-books and more
Emory's Heilbrun Music & Media Library houses thousands of DVDs, CDs and audiobooks. Combined with the OverDrive system of downloadable e-books and audiobooks, it's a perfect source for free summer entertainment for staff, faculty and students.

PERSPECTIVE
Emory alumna channels restless spirit in podcast
