Faculty & Teaching

Through teaching, research, and service, our faculty members play an essential role in helping Emory achieve its vision of an inquiry-driven, ethically engaged, and inclusive intellectual community.

Inspiring the Future

Emory faculty do more than just teach. They are distinguished scientists and researchers, authors, and public intellectuals. Two Emory professors have been awarded the Pulitzer Prize and two the Nobel Peace Prize. Our faculty’s commitment to their communities and their students leaves an impact well beyond their time at Emory.
