Emory University is a private research university in metropolitan Atlanta, located in the Druid Hills section of unincorporated DeKalb County, Georgia, United States. [7] The university was founded as Emory College in 1836 in Oxford, Georgia by the Methodist Episcopal Church and was named in honor of Methodist bishop John Emory.[8] In 1915, the college relocated to metropolitan Atlanta and was rechartered as Emory University after accepting a land grant from Asa Griggs Candler, founder of the The Coca-Cola Company.[9] In 1947, Emory University donated 15 acres of its land to the United States Department of Health and Human Services for the construction of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention headquarters.[10] Emory University has nine academic divisions: Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Oxford College, Goizueta Business School, Laney Graduate School, School of Law, School of Medicine, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Rollins School of Public Health, and the Candler School of Theology.[11] Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology have a strong research partnership and jointly administer the Emory-Georgia Tech Predictive Health Institute and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering Program with Peking University in Beijing, China. [12][13] Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology's combined annual research expenditures exceed $1.25 billion.[14]

Emory University is 16th among the list of colleges and universities in the United States by endowment,[15] 19th among the list of colleges and universities in the world by endowment,[16] 5th among universities in the United States with licensing revenue per dollars spent on research according to The Chronicle of Higher Education,[17] 6th among universities in the United States and Canada for global health contributions and research according Universities Allied for Essential Medicines,[18] and 21st in U.S. News & World Report 's 2015 National Universities Rankings.[19] The university is ranked in the Shanghai Ranking Consultancy's Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), the British Quacquarelli Symonds's QS World University Rankings, and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings as one of the top universities in the world.[20] Emory University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, one of the six regional accreditation organizations recognized by the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.[21] In 1995 Emory University was elected to the Association of American Universities, an association of the 62 leading research universities in the United States & Canada.[22]

The university has nearly 3,000 faculty members; awards and honors recognizing Emory faculty and alumni include the Nobel Prize, Pulitzer Prize, Bancroft Prize, National Humanities Medal, Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, Guggenheim Fellowship, Fulbright Fellowship, American Mathematical Society Fellowship, MacArthur Fellows Program, Presidential Medal of Freedom, Rhodes Scholarship, Marshall Scholarship, and membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, American Society for Clinical Investigation, National Academy of Sciences, and National Research Council.[23][24] Emory University faculty and alumni include a President of the United States, a Vice President of the United States, a President of South Korea, a Prime Minister of South Korea, a Deputy Prime Minister of South Korea, a President of the Republic of Korea National Red Cross, a Member of the Scottish Parliament, a United States Secretary of the Interior, a United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director, a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, a Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Armed Services, a Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Congressmen in both the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives, Ambassadors of the United States, Governors of the States and Territories of the United States, a Chief Information Officer for the Federal Communications Commission, a Senior Executive with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Chief Executive Officers and Presidents in Fortune 500 corporations, an Executive Vice President of the National Geographic Society, Chairman of March of Dimes Foundation, a President of the American Psychological Association, a President of the Korean Sociological Association, a United States Poet Laureate, and a director of the Rockefeller University.[24]

History[edit]

Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church, Emory University
Historic Hopkins-Haygood Gate Lantern, Emory University
Asa Griggs Candler, founder of The Coca-Cola Company, provided a land grant for Emory College to relocate to the metropolitan Atlanta and be rechartered as Emory University.[25] Based on large donations from the Candler, Woodruff, Goizueta, and Rollins families, Emory University is colloquially referred to as "Coca-Cola University." [26]

Nineteenth century[edit]

Emory College was founded in 1836 in Oxford, Georgia by the Methodist Episcopal Church.[27] The college was named in honor of the departed Methodist bishop John Emory.[27] Ignatius Alphonso Few was the college's first president. In 1854, the Atlanta Medical College, a forerunner of Emory University School of Medicine, was founded. On April 12, 1861, the American Civil War began. Emory College was closed in November 1861 and all of its students enlisted.[27] In late 1863 the war came to Georgia and the college was used as hospital and later a headquarters for the Union Army. Thirty five Emory students lost their lives and much of the campus was destroyed during the war.[28]

Emory College, as with the entire Southeastern United States, struggled to overcome financial devastation during the Reconstruction Era. In 1880, Atticus Greene Haygood, Emory College President, delivered a speech expressing gratitude for the end of slavery in the United States, which captured the attention of George I. Seney, a New York banker. Seney gave Emory College $5,000 to repay its debts, $50,000 for construction, and $75,000 to establish a new endowment. In the 1880s, the technology department was launched by Isaac Stiles Hopkins, a polymath professor at Emory College. Hopkins became the first president of the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1888.

Twentieth century[edit]

On August 16, 1906, the Wesley Memorial Hospital and Training School for Nurses, later renamed the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, was established. In 1914, the Candler School of Theology was established. In 1915, Emory College relocated to metropolitan Atlanta and was rechartered as Emory University after accepting a land grant from Asa Griggs Candler, founder of the The Coca-Cola Company. The Emory University School of Law was established in 1916.

First and Second world wars[edit]

On August 6, 1917 the United States entered the First World War. Emory University organized a medical unit, composed of medical school faculty and medical alumni, that would be known as Emory Unit, Base Hospital 43. The unit served in Loir-et-Cher, France from from July 1918 to January 1919. The Emory Unit, Base Hospital 43 was remobilized during the Second World War and served in the North African Campaign and Europe. To recognize Emory’s participation in the war effort, a ship was christened M.S. Emory Victory and served through World War II and in the Korean War.

Emory University students, alumni, and faculty served in the Asia-Pacific War and European theater of World War II, including Bobby Jones (golfer), who participated in the Battle of Normandy. Emory helped the nation prepare for war by establishing a branch of the Navy’s College Training Program, more commonly called the V-12. Dormitories housed premedical Army and Navy students. And at the time, University enrollment boasted two military students for every one civilian. Emory University alumni would go on to serve in the Korean War, Second Indochina War (Vietnam War), Persian Gulf War, Yugoslav Wars, and the Global War on Terrorism.

Expansion and modernization[edit]

The course of Emory's history changed dramatically in November 1979 when Robert Winship Woodruff and George Waldo Woodruff presented the institution with a gift of $105 million in Coca-Cola stock. At the time this was the largest single gift to any institution of higher education in American history, and it made a profound impact on Emory's direction in the next two decades, boosting the university to the top ranks of American research universities.[27]

Twenty-first century[edit]

As one of the fastest-growing research universities in the United States in the 21st century, Emory University has established a national reputation on the strength of the scholarly achievements of its faculty and students, its highly ranked professional schools, a long-term commitment to the arts and sciences, and the presence of more than seventy cutting-edge research centers that are addressing major social problems.[29] To accommodate its growth, Emory has undergone a physical transformation that has increased classroom and research space. The latest additions to the campus include buildings for cancer research, biomedical research, scientific computation, mathematics and science, vaccine research, and the performing arts.[29]
