Take time to smell
the roses. Although Emory is in the middle of a
big city, we are blessed with a beautiful natural setting. A walk
through Lullwater Park is a great stress reliever--unless the pollen
count is over a thousand or it's a red-alert air quality day, in
which case a fund-raising trip to Arizona might be nice.
Respect Emory traditions. Yes,
our mascot is a skeleton named Dooley. No, we don't have a football
team. Yes, you are required to drink Coke.
Remember that students are people,
too. Yes, students are people, people with hopes
and dreams. People with parents. Parents who are paying a lot of
tuition and for what, so their son can get a C in calculus? How
is this possible? He has never gotten a C in his life. What's wrong
with your professors? With grades like this, he's never going to
get into medical school.
Remember that faculty are people, too.
are people, people with hopes and dreams. People with mortgages.
People who could really use more money and what is this, a lousy
2.5 percent raise? How is this possible? Emory is one
of the richest
universities in the country, and all we get is a lousy
raise? And about those teaching loads . . .
Be prepared. You'll
find that the three major administrative problems on Emory's campus
are parking for the students, parking for the alumni, and parking
for the faculty.
Be a good leader.
An opportunity is doing something you don't want to do for which
you get a reward. A challenge is an opportunity without the reward.
Leadership at Emory is getting a faculty member to accept a challenge.
Welcome to Emory!
