Diversity on campus is not enough - inclusion is vital, says Emory President Claire Sterk. Watch her discuss how her background as a first generation college student and immigrant have shaped her efforts to tackle inclusion at Emory.
The presidents and chancellors of the Association of American Universities, including Emory, met this week and strongly endorsed the following statement: "The free and open exchange of ideas and information is fundamental to the educational mission of AAU universities. The robust discussions and debates that occur at research universities have been central to the advancement of democracy, the creation of new knowledge, the fostering of educational excellence, and the promotion of social progress. As heads of these institutions we are unequivocally committed to preserving and honoring this proud heritage." Full statement: emry.link/PPRvBp
