MILESTONE
Convocations mark start of Emory’s new academic year
Steeped in ceremony and tradition, Convocation marks the official start of the academic year. View photos and learn more about Convocation on Emory's Atlanta and Oxford campuses, as well as a tree-planting to commemorate the university’s response to COVID-19.

 

CAMPUS
Our path forward: Emory Police Department
As the Emory community returns to campus, meet Chief Cheryl Elliott of the Emory Police Department and learn how EPD is committed to continuously improving and earning trust, confidence and respect.

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT
Standout students selected as new cohort of Woodruff Scholars
The 26 bright minds arriving at Emory’s Atlanta and Oxford campuses this fall as the Emory Woodruff Scholars Class of 2025 come from as far away as the former Soviet Republic and three countries in eastern Africa.

CONNECTIONS
New roles increase support for Jewish life at Emory
Campus resources expand with the hiring of Rabbi Jordan Braunig in the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life and Paul Entis in the Tam Institute for Jewish Studies.

 

ART
Rediscover the Michael C. Carlos Museum this fall
The Michael C. Carlos Museum’s Asian Art Gallery has reopened after a renovation and reconfiguration. The museum is open with safety measures in place and new exhibits to enjoy during fall semester.

 

COMMITMENT
Symposium to offer new perspectives on Emory's history of slavery and dispossession
The entire Emory community is invited to learn more about the school’s history with slavery and Native American land dispossession — and how that history impacts the present — at the “In the Wake of Slavery and Dispossession” symposium Sept. 29-Oct. 1.

UNIVERSITY
