Emory University is a private research university in Atlanta, Georgia.[15] Founded in 1836 as "Emory College" by the Methodist Episcopal Church and named in honor of Methodist bishop John Emory,[16] Emory is the second-oldest private institution of higher education in Georgia[17] (after Mercer University, founded in 1833[18]).

Emory University has nine academic divisions: Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Oxford College, Goizueta Business School, Laney Graduate School, School of Law, School of Medicine, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Rollins School of Public Health, and the Candler School of Theology.[19] Emory University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Peking University in Beijing, China jointly administer the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.[20][21] The university operates the Confucius Institute in Atlanta in partnership with Nanjing University.[22][23] Emory has a growing faculty research partnership with the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).[24][25][26] Emory University students come from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, five territories of the United States, and over 100 foreign countries.[27]

Emory Healthcare is the largest healthcare system in the state of Georgia[28] and comprises seven major hospitals, including the Emory University Hospital and Emory University Hospital Midtown.[29] The university operates the Winship Cancer Institute, Yerkes National Primate Research Center, and many disease and vaccine research centers.[30][31][32] Emory University is the leading coordinator of the U.S. Health Department's National Ebola Training and Education Center.[33] The university is one of four institutions involved in the NIAID's Tuberculosis Research Units Program.[34] The International Association of National Public Health Institutes is headquartered at the university[35] and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Cancer Society are national affiliate institutions located adjacent to the campus.[36] The university is partnered with the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Carter Center.[37]

Emory University has the 17th-largest endowment among U.S. colleges and universities.[5] The university is classified among "R1: Doctoral Universities – Very high research activity"[38] and is cited for high scientific performance and citation impact in the CWTS Leiden Ranking.[39] The National Science Foundation ranked the university 36th among academic institutions in the United States for research and development (R&D) expenditures.[40][41] In 1995 Emory University was elected to the Association of American Universities, an association of the 66 leading research universities in the United States and Canada.[11]

Emory faculty and alumni include two Prime Ministers, nine university presidents, 11 members of the United States Congress, two Nobel Peace Prize laureates, a Vice President of the United States, a United States Speaker of the House, and a United States Supreme Court Justice. Other notable alumni include 19 Rhodes Scholars and six Pulitzer Prize winners, as well as Emmy Award winners, MacArthur Fellows, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, heads of state and other leaders in foreign government, academics, musicians, and an Olympic medalist.[42] Emory has more than 149,000 alumni, with 75 alumni clubs established worldwide in 20 countries.[43][44][45]

Among Protestant denominations, Methodists take first place in hospitals and colleges. Some of their one hundred colleges and universities have all but severed ties with the denominations, but others remain definitely Methodist: Syracuse, Boston, Emory, Duke, Drew, Denver, and Southern Methodist. The church operates 360 schools and institutions overseas. Methodists established Goodwill Industries in 1907 to help handicapped persons help themselves by repairing and selling old furniture and clothes. The United Methodist Church runs seventy-two hospitals in the United States.
