Welcome from President James W. Wagner

Dr. Wagner

As a destination for pathbreaking researchers, renowned teachers, superb students, and dedicated staff, Emory University strives to help its community members fulfill their highest aspirations. Our vision is to discover truth and, by sharing it, ignite in others a passion for its pursuit.

Our Strategic Plan has provided a map to guide our aspirations and vision for the future, focusing on five key themes: Strengthening Faculty Distinction; Ensuring Highest Student Quality and Enhancing the Student Experience; Creating Community--Engaging Society; Confronting the Human Condition and Human Experience; and Exploring New Frontiers in Science and Technology.

Also vital 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.

As masterfully as individuals at Emory use their intellect and energy, the university remains more than the sum of its parts--a strong intellectual community that seeks excellence by creating and applying knowledge to shape a better world.
