Emory faculty are encouraged to think outside the box when it comes to their strategies in the classroom. Through the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence’s Fund for Innovative Teaching, eighteen projects were funded for the 2014-2014 year, including one that engages students by integrating upper level Portuguese language instruction with a class on Brazilian history and culture, and one that sends students out into nearby Clarkston to “collect” stories from local teens and create a play reflecting those voices. | Full story
Emory students have access to a remarkable asset: Emory faculty. Undergraduates give Emory high marks for quality instruction in their major in the annual senior survey. And this fall, Emory welcomes some four dozen faculty members to its ranks of distinguished and dedicated teacher-researchers.
Through teaching, research and service, Emory's scholars and teachers of all ranks and disciplines leave an enduring imprint on those whose lives the university touches. Faculty members play an essential role in helping Emory achieve its vision of an inquiry-driven, ethically engaged and diverse intellectual community.
At Emory, we maintain the time-tested value of residential liberal arts education. And we do so at two colleges in the context of a major research university.
Our Campus Life team works to fulfill Emory's vision by ensuring the residential experience engages and inspires students throughout their time here. We bring first-year students together in residence halls at the center of campus, and all first- and second-year students live on campus, fostering a sense of community and involvement. Students enjoy hundreds of interest groups on campus as well as easy access to Atlanta's resources.
