Welcome to Dooley Report

By Laura Douglas-Brown | Emory Report | Feb. 17, 2016

Today marks the debut of Dooley Report, a new publication created specifically for Emory students. Every Wednesday, we'll bring you an engaging mix of news, events and information tailored specifically for undergraduate and graduate students.

For decades, Emory Report has been the University's official media outlet. When Emory Report converted to a digital-first format back in 2010, it began being distributed via email to all Emory faculty, staff and students. The digital format brought many advantages, but sending the publication to such a broad audience meant that we didn't really have the ability to feature important news and events that applied only to students.

Now, we're giving you your own official University email newsletter.

Here is what you will find in Dooley Report each week:

  • The Wire covers the biggest news happening across the University: research discoveries, student achievements, innovative teaching, policy and leadership announcements, major events and more.
  • Profiles introduce you to the students, faculty and staff who are the heart of our University, sharing stories and accomplishments.
  • Photo Galleries give you a front-row seat to key events on campus, or give you the chance to see yourself and your friends at events you attended.
  • Take Note provides a variety of shorter news items to keep you informed about the University you call home, including announcements from Campus Life and academic programs.
  • Emory Insider shares insider tips to make the most of your experience at Emory. Each week, you'll find a perk, benefit or other useful information for taking advantage of all that the University has to offer.
  • In the News includes stories from international, national and local media outlets featuring Emory faculty, staff and students as experts in their fields.
  • Featured Events is one of the biggest changes you will recognize. Each week, the University hosts a diverse slate of events spanning academics, athletics and the arts — truly something for everyone. Now we have a dedicated space to share those with you.

In addition to our new sections, you'll also see a variety of recurring columns in Dooley Report:

  • 10 Things to Do for $10 or Less is a countdown of fun, inexpensive things to do on campus. It's been a popular column since it launched earlier this year, and we'll keep bringing it to you at the beginning of every month.
  • Monthly arts previews highlight the biggest upcoming events in music, film, theater, dance, visual arts and other creative disciplines.
  • Acclaim, published the fourth Tuesday of each month, recognizes accomplishments of students, faculty and staff. Listings may include awards and prizes; election to boards and societies; and similarly notable achievements in the wider community. You can submit items to Leslie King, assistant editor of Emory Report, at ltking@emory.edu.
  • How Emory Works, also monthly, shines a spotlight on the people and processes that keep a university bigger than some Georgia cities running smoothly and efficiently.

A new look for Emory Report

As we debut Dooley Report this week, we have also launched a new look for Emory Report. It features a format similar to this issue of Dooley Report, with important University stories included in both publications, but Emory Report will now feature more news, announcements and events targeted specifically to faculty and staff.

Emory Report will continue to be published Tuesdays and Thursdays during the academic year and on Tuesdays during the summer. Students will no longer automatically receive Emory Report, but you can subscribe here.

As we move forward with Dooley Report and Emory Report, we welcome your story ideas, news tips, feedback and suggestions. These are your publications and we need your help to make them the go-to sources for news and information at Emory.

You can learn more about Dooley Report by reading the Dooley Report Guidelines and you can share your ideas and feedback with editor Laura Douglas-Brown at l.douglasbrown@emory.edu.
