About Us

Advancing Emory's Mission


The Office of Government and Community Affairs acts as Emory University's official government liaison and monitors proposed and enacted legislative and regulatory policies.

  • We advocate on a wide range of topics impacting Emory, including academic, health care, and research issues.
  • We work closely with members of the U.S. Congress, the Georgia Legislature, local governments, and community organizations to advance Emory's mission.
  • We promote Emory's contributions and collaborate with local, state, and national civic organizations and professional associations to advance policy positions, as well as strategic initiatives, important to Emory.

We strive to position Emory as a valuable resource and committed partner in our community, across the state and the nation, and around the world. We look forward to working with you.
