UNIVERSITY
Emory will join amicus brief in support of international students
Emory University plans to join an amicus brief supporting a lawsuit to block a new federal policy that would not allow international students to retain their F-1 visas if their course of study is entirely online.

 

CAMPUS
Update on community health and safety during return to campus for research
Based on an assessment of current health and safety conditions, Emory has decided to slow the process for inviting additional faculty, research staff, postdocs and related trainees, graduate and professional students, and visitors to return to campus.

 

PHILANTHROPY
Largest individual gift in Oxford’s history will have lasting impact
Oxford College has received an estate gift of $8.4 million, the largest individual cash gift in its history. Funds will support student financial aid and capital and infrastructure improvements on campus.

 

RESEARCH
Emory key part of newly launched NIH network for COVID-19 clinical trials
Emory University will help lead the new federally funded clinical trials network to centralize efforts to prevent COVID-19. The expansive initiative is sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

ENVIRONMENT
Emory scholars design public digital resource to explore Georgia’s coast
The Georgia Coast Atlas is an online gateway to the dynamic ecosystems and intriguing history of the state’s 100-mile-long coast and barrier islands, weaving together research, fieldwork and technology to create an unprecedented resource for educators, conservationists, students and the public.

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT

STUDENTS
From video games to movies, course underlines classical stories playing out on our screens
