Schools & Units

Emory's schools and other major academic, research, and operating units are our bedrock, without which we cannot build or aspire to anything of lasting value.


In 2005, Emory's schools and other major academic, research, and operating units developed ambitious and exciting plans that would propel each unit forward and formed the core of the University-wide strategic plan.  Emory aspires to transformational leadership on the basis of achievable plans for preeminence developed within each of the schools and major units.


Each unit has since reassessed their aspirations, strategies, and operating models in light of challenging economic times and smaller resource envelopes to support core operations and strategic investments.  Bold thinking, focus, and strategic decisions have been essential in propelling the units and the University forward to achieve the University-wide vision.
