Emory people to list
The Office of Governmental and Community Affairs is in the process of
identifying the many community related initiatives in which Emory and its
faculty, staff and students are involved. The office is distributing a survey
that will inventory these community activities, which will be the first
step in creating a database to serve as a centralized source of information
that can be easily accessed by the Emory community. A web page of program/project
descriptions and key contacts for each will be created once the inventory
For the purposes of the survey, Director of Community Affairs Betty Willis
said that community involvement refers to activities with public agencies
or schools; public or private nonprofit organizations; individual participation
in a volunteer service capacity; or as a resource assisting in addressing
a specific issue or problem.
Surveys should be returned to the Office of Governmental and Community Affairs
by Friday, March 7. For more information, contact Willis by phone at 727-5312,
by fax at 727-5313 or by e-mail at <email@example.com>.
