The Emory Alumni Association (EAA) seeks to encourage its more than 80,000 members to participate in the University community and to be active and engaged members of the Emory family. Alumni are encouraged to attend events on campus and in more than forty cities around the world, to help Emory recruit the finest prospective students, to help our students and each other in their careers, and to provide leadership and support for the University's institutional goals. Emory celebrates the importance of lifelong learning and dedicates a significant part of our alumni programming to its attainment. Emory is an educational resource for our alumni throughout their lives.
