Emory Home

Welcome from President James W. Wagner



Dr. Wagner

As a destination for path-breaking researchers, renowned teachers, superb students, and dedicated, competent staff, Emory University strives to help its community members fulfill their highest aspirations. Our vision is to discover truth, share it, and ignite in others a passion for its pursuit. Through this site, you can learn about the people, activities, and programs that make up Emory's vibrant intellectual community.

As one example, the newly adopted Emory Strategic Plan provides a map to guide our growth and development over the next decade, focusing on five key themes. Similarly, our revised Campus Master Plan outlines a bold proposal for reshaping Emory's presence in Atlanta. Critical to that presence are programs in the arts, University-community partnerships, and the global reach of our initiatives through such Emory entities as The Carter Center.

Also important to Emory's identity and work for positive transformation in the world is the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, the home of not only our schools in health sciences but also Emory Healthcare, the largest health-care system in the State of Georgia.

Although we highlight here many ways that individuals at Emory use their intellect and energy, Emory remains more than the sum of its parts—a strong intellectual community that seeks excellence, not to compete with other institutions, but to contribute to the shaping of a better world.

Jim Wagner
President
