Connecting Faculty and Campus Life

Senior Vice President and Dean of Campus Life Ajay Nair spoke to the Council in April on his division’s increasing efforts to strengthen the connections between academic and campus life. “How do we create a seamless, interdisciplinary learning community?” he began. Nair described a range of new initiatives in Campus Life that aim to bring in-class and out-of-class experiences closer together. Those initiatives include a stronger programmatic vision for the DUC, improved support for international students, a developing “intervention services team” for students with complex psychosocial needs, the drafting of a protest and dissent policy for Emory, efforts to build a “living laboratory” in residential life by “connecting the classroom to the community,” addressing critical issues of diversity on campus, and growth opportunities for sorority and fraternity life around intellectual pursuits, service, character development, and social responsibility
