Emory University is a leading residential liberal arts research university.  Fundamental to our vision of Emory’s future is the creation of dynamic, permeable and flexible structures and processes that unleash the creative potential of our faculty and students.  We envision Emory University as a destination university for faculty engaged in innovative interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching that crosses traditional boundaries of discipline and school, and for students engaged in scholarship and experiential learning that integrates a liberal arts education across the entire university, and crosses into the local and global communities.

To achieve this vision we must be bold in empowering faculty and students to create learning and research communities in ways that may disrupt traditional classroom structures and calendars, and we must align our evaluations and assessments of faculty, staff and students with this vision.
