Fostering innovation and entrepreneurship

The Office of the Provost fosters a dynamic and collaborative academic culture, promotes excellence in faculty research and scholarship, and supports efforts that enhance the university's commitment to newly developing innovative and entrepreneurial ideas.

The innovation initiative includes plans to:

  • Survey the Emory community to increase awareness of unit-related activities
  • Establish a central, curated record of formal campus entities involved
  • Develop a website to help connect people and activities, with an interactive component for community members to share existing and newly proposed activities for consideration
  • Build connections with external entities and strategic partners to develop appropriate economic and business opportunities
  • Establish clear guiding principles to vet requests for the Office of the Provost's executive sponsorship and support activities

We welcome your participation in this evolving initiative. Please share Emory-based activities in innovation and entrepreneurship with us by using our short online survey form. The Office of the Provost is seeking submissions that:

  • Foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship while nurturing excellence in faculty research/scholarship
  • Protect the best interests of faculty across the enterprise
  • Clearly align with the student experience (One Emory) and faculty eminence
  • Create clearly defined access pathways for members of Emory's academic community

Thank you for your participation and interest.
