Making Emory 'great' is Town Hall topic

"Emory would be GREAT if…" is the provocative topic for the Employee Council's 2011 Spring Town Hall.

 The live event will be Tuesday, March 15, at noon in Emory Law's Tull Auditorium. President Jim Wagner, Provost Earl Lewis, Emory Healthcare CEO Wright Caughman and Executive Vice President for Finance Mike Mandl will address the suggestions from employees responding to this topic.

Each year, the Town Hall takes the pulse of Emory employees. "This year, we wanted people to think outside the box, about what they would like to see at Emory to make it better," says Angie Duprey, Employee Council president. "We used the word 'great' to invoke conversation and to think above and beyond 'better'."

Parking and transportation, management and leadership, University standards across the community, and Emory Healthcare's relationship with the University are among the most-cited subjects of the answers to "Emory would be GREAT if . . ."

Suggestions for Town Hall topics can still be submitted via the Employee Council website.

This year, the event will be taped with the archived footage available afterward.

"We wanted people in attendance first and foremost," says Duprey. However,  members of the Emory community at Oxford will have the link to watch live.

"We are almost at capacity with registration," she says about attendance.  "Join us for lunch, let us know what is on your mind."
