“Looking Back, Looking Ahead”

AEA sponsors sixth Alumni University

Go to: Quote, Unquote

Having recently returned from a trip to Morocco, EMILY B. CALHOUN ’62G was ready to learn more about the concept of a “global village” during the Association of Emory Alumni’s sixth annual Alumni University.

Emily B. Calhoun ’62G was one of nearly two hundred attendees.

During this year’s session, “Looking Back, Looking Ahead,” Calhoun attended a lecture titled “Dynamic Crossroads: Emory’s New International Classroom” by Associate Professor of Religion Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger, in which Calhoun learned that fifteen percent of this fall’s first-year class is Asian American, a percentage that has doubled over the past eight years.

Flueckiger also described Emory’s response to changing student demographics and educational expe-tations, citing as one example the University’s decision to add Hindi to its language curriculum.

Nearly two hundred attendees chose from classes on such topics as ancient American art, genealogy, and millennium-driven examinations of the future of American law and business.

“I like the university experience, [which] you just don’t get in business life,” said RAYMOND F. POHL’72D, who traveled to Emory from Englewood, Colorado, for his fourth Alumni University.—G.F.

now because we don’t know what products we are going to be buying and selling two years from now. No one can tell you what your job will look like, but we do know you need one skill and one skill alone, and that is the capability to develop more capabilities. If you do not, in this new knowledge market, you’re gone.
