CAMPUS

Emory President Claire E.

However, planning already is underway to celebrate and commemorate the Class of 2020.

 

SUPPORT
EmoryTogether Fund established to help students with financial hardships
Emory has established a $5 million EmoryTogether Fund to support undergraduate, graduate and professional students of various income levels and backgrounds who may incur financial hardships as a result of COVID-19. More information and application guidelines are expected to be released Monday.

 

RESEARCH

Effective immediately, laboratory researchers should begin a pandemic-mitigation process to suspend and conclude experiments and reduce direct contact study visits with participants for all non-essential, non-critical, on-campus research.

 

SCIENCE
