HEALTH
Critical need, critical care
What if you pushed the nurse call button and no one came? Emory is working to make sure that never happens — and teaching those who answer the call to lead with courage and compassion.

 

RESEARCH
New book explores history of voter suppression in America
In "One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy," Emory historian Carol Anderson asserts that many of the efforts employed to impede black voters in the Jim Crow South are still being used successfully today.

 

COMMUNITY
Look for Catlanta's #Carloscats on campus through Friday
Street artist Catlanta created custom #Carloscats for the "Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt" exhibition at Emory's Michael C. Carlos Museum. Search for the wooden kitties around campus through Friday and see the exhibit by Nov. 11.

 

MUSIC
Emory project to provide wide access to influential American songbooks
The Emory Center for Digital Scholarship will use a $260,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to publish digital and print editions of widely popular but currently inaccessible American Protestant songbooks.

ENGAGEMENT
Community input sought for launch of Emory's new master plan
An online survey and four campus town halls this week seek community insight as Emory starts creating a new master plan, which will help provide a roadmap to plan for the university's future facilities and digital investments.
