2014 College Priorities
Alumni and friends who invest in Emory College create extraordinary opportunities for students, enable faculty members to complete transformative research and create pioneering academic programs, build sustainable spaces outfitted with the latest technology, and keep Emory College progressing.
The school’s top fund-raising priorities for 2014, according to Dean Robin Forman, are outlined below.
Endowed scholarships. When you make an endowed gift, it is an act of philanthropic leadership that connects your personal values with Emory’s work and inspires others to create their own legacies at Emory College. Students who benefit from named scholarships often contribute to scholarship support later in life, helping yet more students and strengthening Emory College’s culture of philanthropy.
Support for emerging programs of national significance. The dean recognizes that Emory has an opportunity for national leadership in emerging fields, such as human health, QuanTM, disability studies, neurosciences, and environmental sciences and sustainability. Your support will give these areas in Emory College an even greater edge toward global prominence.
Support for experiential learning for students. With financial help from donors like you, Emory College students can broaden and deepen their learning through study abroad, undergraduate research, and internships and service learning opportunities that allow them to serve companies and communities while gaining invaluable hands-on experience.
