"This report shows why we at Emory can be enthusiastic and hopeful about our future," writes President James Wagner.

Emory's newly released 2011 Annual Report, "The Educational Enterprise," highlights institutional progress and priorities in its 175th year within themes including the liberal arts, the academic community, scholarship and research, and health care.

"The state of Emory University is very good," President James Wagner writes in the introduction. "But instead of asking you to take that pronouncement on faith, this report describes in some detail the health of our three primary enterprises — education, research and scholarship, and health care — as well as our financial health and the health of our scholarly community. In the end, this report shows why we at Emory can be enthusiastic and hopeful about our future."

Wagner discusses Emory's commitment to financial aid and the unique role played by the Emory Advantage aid program for undergraduates in one of several videos featured in the report's online presentation. Other videos selected to emphasize major themes include Provost Earl Lewis on the value of an Emory liberal arts education and patient Linda Lu sharing her experience of receiving a complete hand transplant at Emory University Hospital.

Annual financial statements, along with a financial letter that summarizes the past fiscal year, are also available online.

The president's website houses Emory's annual reports dating back to 2007.
