ECL Program Highlights: Fall 2017

September 26, 2017

Check out recent developments for Emory Campus Life offices, programs, and initiatives.

Office for Racial and Cultural Engagement (RACE) is a new initiative of Emory Campus Life’s Community portfolio. Building on many years of outstanding work by the Office of Multicultural Programs and Services (OMPS), RACE will partner with various Emory organizations to create programs and initiatives that challenge students to explore the ways in which race informs cultural and communal development. Check out the RACE newsletter.

Emory Family Weekend and Homecoming are scheduled for the same weekend this year, October 19-22. Emory Campus Life (ECL), Student Programming Council (SPC), and Emory Alumni Association (EAA) combined the events to add synergy to both and avoid conflicts with religious holidays in September and October.

Campus Life Center (CLC) construction preparation moves forward. Among a range of activities in September, crews prepared the jobsite for Tropical Storm Irma. They also placed steel on the concrete foundation for the project mockup in the courtyard behind Raoul Hall.

The mockup is a mini-version of specific sections of the building’s exterior cladding. It will allow a review in the field of how the various components of the walls and window systems interact with one another and how various materials look together on-site. Seeing this in the early stages of the project allows for changes, if needed, before long-lead items such as the window systems are fabricated and delivered to the project.

Learn more at the CLC website, where you can watch a video of demolition of the old building, view animated images of the new facility, check out weekly updates, and sign up to receive the CLC newsletter.

Strategic Planning Committee has developed a new template for departmental strategic plans and uploaded these plans to the ECL strategic planning webpage, where all departmental plans may be viewed. The new template will be used to upload updates for each departmental plan for the duration of this strategic planning cycle. Updates will be due twice per year at the end of September and March. More information on this process will be shared with departments by Strategic Planning Committee members.
