With a track record of scholarship on civil rights, a strong African American studies program, and relationships with organizations that focus on social and racial justice, Emory is positioned for leadership on issues around inequity, public health, and educational disparities.

Emory has set goals for working toward a student body, faculty, and staff that accurately reflect Atlanta’s social and racial diversity. In addition, Emory is acknowledging and atoning for past discrimination and racial injustices and working toward true equity and access—in admissions, scholarships, hiring, and the health care Emory provides across Georgia.

Making a gift to any of the funds listed below will not count in the Racial and Social Justice tally above because it will count in the total for its associated program area (i.e. Emory Libraries, Emory Law, etc.).

For Emory Day of Giving, we are highlighting these funds:
