FUNDING
The Goizueta Foundation makes $30 million gift to Goizueta Business School

RESEARCH
Emory psychologists explore acoustics of a primal human call: the scream
Screams are prompted by a variety of emotions, from surprise to terror. But no matter what sparks them, human screams share distinctive acoustic parameters that listeners are attuned to, suggests a new study from the lab of psychologist Harold Gouzoules.

 

INVOLVEMENT
University recognized for student voter turnout in midterm elections
Both the Atlanta and Oxford campuses recently received awards for high student participation during the 2018 midterm elections. Volunteers hope to further increase involvement by faculty, staff and students in 2020.
