Emory values an open, respectful, diverse community. Three presidential commissions, funded through the Office of Equal Opportunity Programs, serve as advisory panels about issues of concern to campus members.
The Office of Community and Diversity is dedicated to supporting and enhancing Emory's commitment to engaged scholarship and courageous inquiry. By providing leadership, encouragement and guidance we hope to increase our institutional capacity for self-reflection, community building and pluralism. We will work in partnership with individuals and departments across the campus to enhance practices of access, equity and respect. Our efforts will deepen Emory's traditions of ethical, personal and institutional engagement in all of our learning and working environments.
Emory University’s Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Life engages the university community in the creation of an affirming and just campus environment while supporting the development of students of all gender and sexual identities.
The Center for Women at Emory helps Emory University provide the best possible environment for women as students, scholars and employees. It advocates for gender equity throughout the University; provides resources and skill-building opportunities; and brings faculty, students, practitioners, activists, and other learners together to examine gender issues and works toward ethical solutions.
The Office of Disability Services mission is to ensure opportunity for equal access and equal participation in all programs and services available and providing reasonable and appropriate accommodations to persons who are otherwise qualified and demonstrate through documentation significant limitations in a basic life activity as we promote the value of a full and rich living, learning and working experience in our community.
