CLASSROOM
COVID-19 in class: Lessons from the pandemic
Courses across Emory have pivoted to examine COVID-19 as a real-time learning experience. Whether discussing crisis management, studying effects on air pollution, hearing from health care providers or collecting supplies to support them, students are learning extraordinary lessons in an extraordinary time.

 

CAMPUS
Virtual Community Hub helps keep students connected
Connect with new and old friends through the new Emory Virtual Community Hub. Tap into virtual events and activities, admire (or submit) art and share your Spotify playlist. Plus, document this time by writing a “Note to Self” that will be sent back to you next year.

 

SUPPORT
Join Emory for virtual Denim Day on April 22

EDUCATION
Classes that click: Population health
