INNOVATION
Emory's Compassion-Centered Spiritual Health derived from ancient Tibetan traditions
With a deep focus on compassion, inspired by that of Tibetan monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in South India, Emory introduces a new initiative called Compassion-Centered Spiritual Health, designed to help alleviate distress in patients and families and mitigate burnout in health care professionals.

 

LEADERSHIP
Emory University responds to recent executive order
At Emory, we value, promote and encourage the free expression of ideas. Each day we strive to create a learning environment that supports and respects independent thought, inquiry, speech and assembly.

IMPACT
Emory's advocacy work on Capitol Hill highlights importance of research, collaboration
