Emory University's mission is to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity. To fulfill this mission, the university promotes teaching from the undergraduate to the advanced graduate and professional levels, and scholarship from basic research to its application in public service for the betterment of humankind. As a comprehensive research university, Emory has academic programs that span an impressive range from arts and sciences to business, law, theology, and the health professions. These different fields of study are knit together by robust interdisciplinary programs and a core devotion to liberal learning.  As an Association of American Universities member, Emory embraces a research-intensive culture, which has, as its core, a liberal arts foundation. 

With campus resources that include an expanded chemistry building, a new sciences building at Oxford College, the newly remodeled Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library, and a soon-to-be-completed new wing of Emory University Hospital, our students and faculty are able to forge intellectual connections throughout campus as never before, in spaces designed to catalyze opportunities for discovery, growth, and community.

Community, for Emory, is a system of deep roots that radiate outward. In innumerable ways, across every facet of the university's expertise, we grow partnerships beyond our gates and throughout the world, using knowledge to solve real-world problems.

We hold fast to demonstrating common cause in situations where we are needed most. In this way, faculty, staff, and students make good on Emory's almost-limitless capacity for social transformation.

In settings that span health care, education, religion, law, and business, our human capital changes lives for the better every day.
