CONNECTIONS
Coronavirus, community and compassion
The global health crisis hits home for Emory, from faculty exploring possible treatments to a postdoctoral researcher who had to cancel the traditional wedding she had planned with her family in China. Across Emory's campuses, students, faculty and staff are coming together to help those impacted by the outbreak.

 

LITERATURE
Celebrated poet Nikki Giovanni to give free reading at Emory
Celebrated activist poet Nikki Giovanni will read her work on Saturday, Feb. 22, at 4 p.m. at Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts.

CAMPUS

Lawyer and human rights activist Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Montgomery, Alabama-based Equal Justice Initiative, will deliver the keynote address at Emory's 175th Commencement, scheduled for Monday, May 11.

 

SUSTAINABILITY
Annual recycling competition diverts almost 400 tons of waste from landfills
Candler School of Theology/Rita Anne Rollins/Pitts Library won Emory’s 2019 recycling competition by composting and recycling over 37,000 more pounds in November 2019 than in November 2018. See how other areas compared.

DISCOVERY
The physics of giant bubbles
A study inspired by street performers making gigantic soap bubbles led Emory scientists—including students in physicist Justin Burton’s lab—to a discovery in fluid mechanics: Mixing different molecular sizes of polymers within a solution increases the ability of a thin film to stretch without breaking.
