“First and foremost, what makes a university great is its people,” said President Gregory L. Fenves. “Rankings are important as we continue to focus on our core roles: conducting research, providing students with the best education possible, and being actively involved in our communities at home and beyond.”
“Emory is a leading research university that promotes excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future,” said Jan Love, Provost and Executive Vice President, Academic Affairs. “These results reflect Emory’s commitment to delivering the most comprehensive and financially accessible college experience among the best universities in the country, and to creating an on-campus life experience for students that builds a vibrant, impact-driven intellectual community.”
