MacArthur Funds New Graduate Degree Program

Emory’s James T. Laney School of Graduate Studies is one of ten institutions worldwide to receive a $900,000 grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to create a master’s degree in development practice (MDP). The grant is part of the foundation’s effort to promote sustainable development for poor nations.

The Laney Graduate School’s MDP will focus on Latin America and the Caribbean and draw resources from the Rollins School of Public Health, Goizueta Business School, the School of Law, and the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing.
