Letter from the President

Theme:  To prosper and thrive as an Emory employee

How can we prosper and thrive as an Emory employee?  This year, the Employee Council will spend time learning the fundamental qualities of living and leading with excellence as an Emory employee.  Our monthly meetings will provide a time for Emory faculty, staff, students, and outside professionals that excel in the following core components to share and provide insight into supporting Emory’s Guiding Principle of striving for the highest degree of integrity:

Health, Wellness, Mindfulness, and Movement

Purpose and Vulnerability

Resilience and Adaptability

Creativity and Aptitude

Happiness, Compassion, and Benevolence

Emory as Place - How our place sustains us

Diversity and Inclusion

Nourishment:  Food for Life

The focus of the Employee Council and their constituents will be to learn ways to continue the support of Emory’s Vision of “working collaboratively for positive transformation in the world through courageous leadership in teaching, research, scholarship, health care, and social action.”

I am looking forward to sharing this journey alongside all of you!

Deena Keeler, Employee Council President, 2017-18.
