Our Approach

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations is a gateway to Emory University—a premier research institution and academic medical center driven to apply knowledge in service of humanity.

We link students, faculty members, university programs, and health care resources with corporations and foundations in five ways:

We partner corporations and foundations with Emory programs, increasing campus visibility and engagement with the Emory community while creating positive change. Our strategic philanthropic opportunities include naming rights, scholarships, fellowships, sponsorships, faculty support, programmatic support, and more.

We connect industry executives and Emory faculty members to exchange thought leadership. Our team also identifies Emory programs geared toward executives and employees, from professional development in Executive Education and Continuing Education to health and well-being in Executive Health and the Emory Clinic.

Through students, thought capital, health care resources, and numerous community programs, our team promotes Emory as an economic development tool that enriches the community and business climate of Atlanta and the region. Resources include diversity and inclusion, climate and sustainability, and access to Emory startups.

Emory is a premiere R1 research institution and academic medical center on the forefront of new discoveries. Our office links industry with Emory research to create mutually beneficial partnerships across a range of fields, from biotech and pharmaceuticals to law, marketing, data science, and beyond. These collaborations include sponsored research, clinical trials, and technology licensing.

Our office is the bridge to more than 15,000 Emory undergraduate and graduate students through student life programs and recruitment offices across Emory’s academic schools and units. In addition to student recruitment, student engagement opportunities include internships and experiential learning.
