Class of 2023, Earn a Blue Tassel by Making a Difference!

Congratulations, Class of 2023! 

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 350 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 2023 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

Student Experience Fund will support community-building and class-year traditions that deepen student and alumni engagement with our university. This creates a richer undergraduate experience for the entire campus community. Funding will energize the university community, provide opportunities for all community members to be engaged, and allow for more fun activities on campus. Enhancing support of the student experience will increase our retention rates, graduation rates, student satisfaction, and alumni engagement by building a stronger sense of community and belonging among students. 

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.

Student Well Being Fund develops holistic health and wellness interventions by increasing staffing and expanded programming in clinical care, case management, crisis response, and preventative care. Additionally, this will allow for new educational programs to be developed that address holistic wellness and offer training opportunities for faculty and staff on how to support and identify students that may need help. 

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.

Contributions to theBBA 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.

The Emory College of Arts and Sciences Pathways Center Fund makes it possible for students to prepare for professional paths that integrate what they learn in the classroom with hands-on, high-impact experiences like internships, undergraduate research, and intentional advising and career services. 

The School of Nursing Students Hardship Fund consists of charitable donations provided by Emory University–affiliated people and entities, students, organizations, or persons who want to ensure Emory nursing students do not withdraw from the School of Nursing following an unexpected financial event.

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 2023 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).
