Letter from the President

Our theme for the 2016 -2017 academic year is "The Greatness of Emory." This year’s theme encourages each of us to seek opportunities to collaborate and support our colleagues across the enterprise while sharing our zeal for Emory.

The members of the Employee Council are charged this year with communicating concisely to our colleagues about the purpose, goals, and successes of Employee Council.

We encourage each of you to join us at our monthly Employee Council meetings. We will continue to disseminate information during our meetings that occur every third Wednesday of the month from 11am - noon. These meetings have a positive atmosphere to stimulate change within the Emory Community.

We will continue to discuss our goals of supporting and fostering transparency and inclusion which was discussed at the recent Town Hall meeting held on April 12, 2016. We will also discuss topics concerning excellence, optimism and integrity during our upcoming meetings.

We will also exercise our due diligence by reviewing the policy, procedures and practices at Emory. This also includes the review of the Employee Council by-laws in order to make changes if necessary. 

I’m looking forward to working with you this year.

Marlon L Gibson
President, Employee Council 2016-2017
