Visit from Chair of Board of Trustees John Morgan

John Morgan, chair of the Emory¬†Board of Trustees, described what drew him to Emory as a student and, more recently, in service to the university as a trustee and benefactor during the Oct. 21 meeting of the Faculty Council. An Emory alumnus and business executive, Morgan (67OX, 69B) was elected board chair in November 2013, succeeding Ben F. Johnson III, who had served as chair since 2000. Morgan’s goals include enhancing communication within the Emory community, strategies that support the efficient use of resources, and building the university’s endowment. Among the trustees, he hopes to nurture a culture of trust, dedication, commitment, and personal responsibility. “The trustees’ purpose is really to support and to build the conditions right for the faculty to be able to advance learning and to teach, and for our students to have the environment they need to learn and thrive,” Morgan says.
