Center for Public Scholarship and Engagement

The Center for Public Scholarship and Engagement, based at Emory’s Oxford College campus and serving the entire university, creates opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to share ideas, insights and inspiration with local and global audiences.

What We Do


The Center for Public Scholarship and Engagement creates opportunities for Emory's faculty, students, and staff to engage with the community at large.

About us


The Academy is designed to help scholars understand the challenges presented by the evolving public conversation while also giving them the tools to help effect change and thrive in a larger forum.

The Academy


This annual event is intended to foster conversations beyond the campus and to engage the public in ideas that are central to our world today.
