Congratulations, Class of 2022!
Though your time as an Emory student is ending, the connections you made and the experiences you had will last a lifetime. You have surely had a hand in shaping our community for the past four years, but your commitment doesn’t end here! As you are soon to be alumni, we hope we can count on you to continue your commitment to influence positive change in our Emory communities. Join nearly 150 of your graduating peers who chose to support the area at Emory that inspires them most. A $5 gift is all it takes to effect change in the lives of students in need and your gift, of any size, is quite literally an investment in the communities that now need the support of future alumni, like you, to thrive! Learn more about the impact your gift would make for each student support fund below.
As a special thank you for your generosity, all graduating seniors who make a gift will receive a Class of 2022 Blue Tassel, just in time for commencement. We will be sharing our convenient, on-campus, tassel pick-up times and locations soon. We thank you for choosing to leave this institution a much better place!
Direct Student Support
Campus Life: Student Success Fund supports The Center for Student Success Programs and Services which works to assist students and their families on an ongoing basis and in times of crisis – including but not limited to meeting academic, medical, financial, and social challenges, as well as providing assistance to assault survivors.
Diversity and Inclusion Programming- The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI), guided by Emory's Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Carol E. Henderson, creates spaces for faculty, staff, and students to work and learn in inclusive, equitable, safe, and diverse environments where they thrive and bring their whole selves to our campus community.
The new Emory Food Security Fund allows consistent access to healthy meals through the office of Student Case Management & Interventions Services (SCMIS). Your gift ensures that the office can continue to purchase groceries to stock the Eagle Food Co-op food pantry, order grocery gift cards to support students in crisis, and provide campus meals to students over school breaks when regular dining is halted. If you are a student experiencing need, fill out this form to get direction to necessary services.
The Student Hardship Fund (SHF) was formed in 2011 to support Emory students facing unexpected financial hardship. The fund aids both undergraduates and graduates at Emory University across all nine schools on the Atlanta and Oxford campuses. By providing financial assistance to support students during catastrophic events, such as a death in the family, unexpected job loss, uninsured medical expenses, and eviction, the Student Hardship Fund allows Emory students to continue their education despite the obstacles they are facing.
Contributions to the BBA GoBeyond Fund help provide support for BBA student experiences not covered by tuition so that all undergraduate students have an enriching educational experience and access to opportunities such as Career Treks, conferences, clothing for interviews, etc.
Gifts to Emory College Scholarships create need-based or merit scholarships that amplify our commitment to making an Emory College education accessible for all.
Your gift to the Nursing School Scholarship Fund supports students across all our programs and enables Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing to attract the best-and-brightest students from across the country.
Gifts to the Oxford Class Gift Fund will benefit the entire Oxford community by providing support to raise awareness about the ways in which social justice and mental health intersect.
All Class of 2022 student donors to this campaign will receive a Blue Tassel. Keep your commemorative Blue Tassel to display for years to come on your rearview mirror, as part of your framed diploma, or as a conversation starter on the office wall of your first job! Please note that the university's regalia policy states that the official black tassel must be worn at Commencement (but your blue tassel can be added to your cap).
