Emory University, a top-ranked private institution recognized internationally for its outstanding liberal arts colleges, graduate and professional schools, and one of the world’s leading health care systems, is located on a beautiful campus in Atlanta, Georgia’s historic Druid Hills neighborhood.
As a leading research university, and one of only 65 universities in the Association of American Universities (AAU), Emory’s passion, purpose, and resolve help sustain and improve global communities through individual actions and collective impact.
Emory maintains an uncommon balance for an institution of its standing: our scholars and experts generate $689.1 million in research funding annually while also maintaining a traditional emphasis on teaching. The university is enriched by collaboration among its schools, centers, and partners as well as by the legacy and energy of Atlanta.
Founded in 1836, our community continues to imagine and realize the university’s mission: to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity. At the heart of Emory’s impact is a distinct purpose: to think beyond oneself. Emory is a community of impact, where the greater good is balanced with individual interest.
The excellence and dedication of our faculty are why students from around the world come to Emory, where they embark on a rigorous and inclusive educational journey that transforms them into tomorrow’s leaders.
Our leadership in academia is broad and deep, ranging from medical breakthroughs and innovative drug therapies born in our labs to breaking new ground in the humanities and social sciences.
Here, students discover a culture of open and civil discourse, develop the confidence to confront difficult questions, work closely with academic experts, and connect with a set of peers as diverse as the world around them.
