2013 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 2013, according to Dean Robin Forman, are outlined below.
Support for scholarships. Private gifts provide much-needed financial assistance to academically gifted students for whom an Emory education might not be possible otherwise.
Innovation in teaching and research. Gifts allow faculty members to develop pioneering programs, support learning, and broaden the influence of their work in all disciplines.
Chemistry building addition. A new chemistry facility will be the hub of Emory’s growing science commons, which integrates research, graduate studies, and undergraduate teaching in chemistry, psychology, physics, math, computer science, and the natural sciences.
