UNIVERSITY
Emory will join amicus brief in support of international students
Emory University plans to join an amicus brief supporting a lawsuit to block a new federal policy that would not allow international students to retain their F-1 visas if their course of study is entirely online.

 

PHILANTHROPY
Largest individual gift in Oxford’s history will have lasting impact
Oxford College has received an estate gift of $8.4 million, the largest individual cash gift in its history. Half of the donation will fund student financial aid through the Duane and Emy Blair Scholarship Endowment, with the other half reserved for capital improvements to campus buildings and infrastructure.

ENVIRONMENT
Emory scholars design public digital resource to explore Georgia’s coast
The Georgia Coast Atlas is an online gateway to the dynamic ecosystems and intriguing history of the state’s 100-mile-long coast and barrier islands, weaving together research, fieldwork and technology to create an unprecedented resource for educators, conservationists, students and the public. The interactive trove keeps expanding through the efforts of Emory students and faculty.

 

DISCOVERY
