Education at Emory in a Changing World

This exhibition was created by students in Dr. Sheila Cavanagh’s fall 2017 class, English 489 and English 780: Creating an Exhibit: Theories and Practices. “Education at Emory in a Changing World” presents student research addressing how Emory has both responded to and influenced the way Emory graduates learn in a changing world.
