The longstanding mission of Emory Campus Life is to cultivate a welcoming community that allows students to put their education into practice, enhancing their Emory experience beyond the classroom. Your generous support enables us to offer world-class programs and services that foster the growth of students and inspire them to make a positive difference in the world and their communities.
We invite you to make a gift to enhance Emory Campus Life and help us empower students to create positive change in their individual lives, across the Emory campus, and throughout our society.
For Emory Day of Giving we are highlighting these giving opportunities:
1915 Scholars Program celebrates the heritage and ongoing journeys of students who are the first in their family to attend college by providing informational, academic, and social support through alumni and peer mentoring while encouraging and supporting students’ college aspirations.
Barkley Forum Endowment is a fund which supports Emory’s competitive and nationally ranked debate league. Competitive debate, community outreach, and campus engagement activities all support the holistic development of students, helping them to become leaders who change the world for the better. Barkley Forum pioneered the growth of Urban Debate Leagues (UDLs) in Atlanta Public Schools and expanded into faculty-let outreach programs in 23 cities nationwide as well as internationally.
Civic & Community Engagement Fund supports and prepares students to further develop into global citizens that are socially responsible, critically aware, and meaningfully engages through our breath of service opportunities. Some of these programs include Community Building and Social Change Fellows, Graduation Generation, SHINE, Volunteer Emory, and Emory Votes Initiative.
Food Security allows consistent access to healthy meals through the office of Student Case Management & Interventions Services (SCMIS). Your gift ensures that the office can continue to purchase groceries to stock the Eagle Food Co-op pantry, order grocery gift cards to support students in crisis, and provide campus meals to students over school breaks when regular dining is halted.
Student Experience Fund will support community-building and class-year traditions that deepen student and alumni engagement with our university. This creates a richer undergraduate experience for the entire campus community. Funding will energize the university community, provide opportunities for all community members to be engaged, and allow for more fun activities on campus. Enhancing support of the student experience will increase our retention rates, graduation rates, student satisfaction, and alumni engagement by building a stronger sense of community and belonging among students.
Student Well Being Fund develops holistic health and wellness interventions by increasing staffing and expanded programming in clinical care, case management, crisis response, and preventative care. Additionally, this will allow for new educational programs to be developed that address holistic wellness and offer training opportunities for faculty and staff on how to support and identify students that may need help.
Wonderful Wednesdays is one of Emory’s flagship school spirit organizations that strives to unify the university through creating a space for all student organizations and clubs to have agency for their organization by providing an outlet to advertise, fundraise, recruit, and engage their organizations across campus. Funds raised could enhance the student experience and increase the Emory Community spirt by expanding Wonderful Wednesday After Dark and Wonderful Weekend opportunities, purchasing t-shirts and other swag items, food, and entertainment.
