A Lecture and a Legacy
Among the many ways Robert DeHaan enhanced the education of Rollins School of Public Health students and brought eminence to the school was by establishing the Virginia S. DeHaan Lecture on Health Promotion and Education. Named for his late wife, Virginia DeHaan 77MPH, the lecture series honors the memory of an outstanding public health faculty member. Give to support the lecture series today.
Diversity’s High Value
A recipient of the Emory Law Distinguished Alumni Award, Rob Henrikson 72L understands the value of bringing the best students from across the cultural spectrum to study at Emory University School of Law. To help make that happen, he and his wife, Mary Henrikson, established the C. Robert Henrikson Endowed Scholarship Fund in 2001. Since then, thirty students have graduated from the law school through hard work and with financial help from the Henriksons. Give today to support scholarships at Emory's School of Law.

A Wealth of Knowledge
The Emory Libraries are central to every Emory student’s academic life. Alumni and friends who want to support student work in the libraries can do so by creating fellowships. Alumnus Bill Newton 75C 76G and his wife, Anne Newton 76G, for example, fund an annual fellowship in the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library. This year the Newton Fellowship is helping PhD candidate Asha French 16G finish her dissertation and build a portfolio of published work. Give today to support the work of the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library.
