Emory University message regarding government shutdown
Emory Report | Oct. 3, 2013
Emory University leaders are working closely with colleagues in the research and higher education community, including the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), to determine the impact of the partial federal government shutdown on the Emory community and its various entities.
At this point in time, the most immediate impact for Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center will be on research administrators who work with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on federal research grant applications and associated paperwork. Funding for federal student aid, for now, will not be affected.
"It is difficult to predict what will result from a longer-term shutdown, however, and a protracted shutdown could well slow critical and life-saving research," says President James Wagner. "We hope for a swift resolution to this situation, and will keep the Emory community informed regarding significant developments."
