Emory's work in the community showcased
Emory Report | Oct. 2, 2012
Emory's partnerships and work in the community are highlighted in a new University publication, "Emory Engaging the Community."
"This publication describes some of the many ways in which our students, faculty and staff are reaching out to partner with communities in Atlanta and Georgia," says President James Wagner.
A variety of programs—from the Office of University-Community Partnerships (newly renamed as the Center for Community Partnerships) to the graduate and professional schools' community partnerships—are described in the booklet, which, as Provost Earl Lewis says, is intended to be "illustrative, not exhaustive."
"Though this booklet largely focuses on the outreach efforts of Emory volunteers across so many units of the university, our relationships with our partners are—in the end—how we change lives, policies, structures, frameworks, services, and so forth to ensure that community is a meaningful, effective idea," notes Ozzie Harris, senior vice provost for community and diversity.
The booklet also includes figures on Emory's economic contributions to the community and beyond.
