Emory Everywhere

Dear Friends,

With the newly minted degree holders, the ranks of Emory alumni have topped 121,000, represented by chapters across the globe. The spirit of Emory lives in cities and towns through the extraordinary impact made by each of you in ways large and small.

I’m honored to be the incoming 2014–2015 president of the Emory Alumni Board, and always happy to be a part of the Emory College Class of 1995. The Alumni Board continues to be the active voice of Emory alumni, providing leadership input to the administration and ongoing engagement with current Emory University staff and students. Each day my distinguished colleagues on the board and the Emory Alumni Association staff work to improve the Emory experience for every member of the Emory family.

Whether you engage with Emory through your local alumni chapter, mentor students on career choices, interview prospective Emory students, volunteer locally, use Emory’s education-enrichment programs, or benefit from the exclusive services offered to Emory alumni, there is an ever-expanding array of ways to facilitate an active and ongoing connection to Emory and to your fellow alumni.

I look forward to serving alongside each of you to enrich our ongoing Emory experience.

Doug Shipman 95C
Incoming President,
Emory Alumni Board
