Twin Memorials Discussions
As part of its efforts to honor and memorialize the untold experiences, stories, and contributions of enslaved individuals and their descendants who lived and worked on the university's original campus in Oxford, Georgia, Emory University is creating a plan for twin memorials that articulates and interconnects the shared histories of the Emory and Oxford campuses.

Emory highly values your comments, and is seeking input from students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as descendants, neighbors, and local community members.

The next Atlanta Campus engagement session is this Friday, February 18 at the Candler School of Theology.

Other upcoming dates include two events at Oxford on February 17, an additional event on the 18th for campus life staff, and the 24th.
