March 18, 2014: Resolution passed in the University Senate.
A Campus Compact/Student Government Association/Senate Diversity Committee Collaboration.
Diversity Statement for Classes at Emory University:
Emory University’s non-discrimination policy states, “Pursuant to the University’s commitment to a fair and open campus environment and in accordance with federal law, Emory cannot and will not tolerate discrimination against or harassment of any individual or group based upon race, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, gender, genetic information, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran’s status, or any factor that is a prohibited consideration under applicable law.”
Emory’s honor code policies confer on every individual who is a part of Emory University the responsibility for maintaining in the life of Emory a standard of unimpeachable honor in all academic work.
Thus, faculty are expected to treat all students with respect, according to Emory’s non-discrimination policy, and students are expected to follow the principles outlined in student honor and conduct codes with regard to the treatment of fellow students and faculty. Students and faculty are expected during classroom interactions and discussions to exhibit a cooperative respect for diverse viewpoints.
If students or faculty need resources, information, counsel, or mediation around the topic of discrimination, or if they would like to learn more about compliance training, they should contact the Office of Institutional Equity and Inclusion Director, Carol Flowers: email@example.com; tel: 404-727-9867. To report concerns around the topic of diversity and bias, students should visit the following website: http://www.emory.edu/CAMPUS_LIFE/sis/bias_incident_protocol/form.html

I write to remind you that the Honorary Degree Committee welcomes faculty, staff, students, and alumni to submit nominations for distinguished candidates for an honorary degree from Emory University. Nominations to be considered for the 2013 commencement and beyond must be submitted by November 10, 2011. Please encourage your constituents to nominate individuals who have achieved the highest distinction in their fields while also demonstrating a transformational impact.
Nominations may be submitted in one of three ways:
1.) Submit online at:
2.) Email a nomination letter and supporting documents to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3.) Mail nomination letter and supporting documents to Honorary Degree Nominations, Emory University, Office of the Vice President and Secretary of the University, Administration Building 407, Mail Stop # 1000/001/1AN, Atlanta, GA 30322.
All Honorary Degree Nomination Letters should address the following:
- What are the nominee’s achievements that would merit this honor?
- Why is it particularly fitting for Emory University to honor this nominee?
- Would an honorary degree from Emory University have any special significance for this nominee?
- Would the award have any special significance or meaning for graduating students?
Except in extraordinary circumstances, persons who have spent the greatest part of their careers as members of the Emory faculty or administration or those currently serving in US elective office are not considered. The committee will, however, receive with interest nominations of persons otherwise associated with Emory such as alumni, distinguished visiting faculty, etc. The committee encourages the nomination of individuals from diverse demographic backgrounds.
Nominations are kept active (i.e., considered each year) for a period of five years. To review past honorary degree recipients and related information, visit the website:
