Students walking on campus

Undergraduate Council

Emory commits to creating an outstanding educational experience for undergraduates. The Undergraduate Council prioritizes the student experience, removing barriers to undergraduates’ success and positioning them to flourish at Emory and beyond.

Launched in spring 2022, the Undergraduate Council, led by Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Ravi V. Bellamkonda, brings together Emory leaders from across campus. The council collectively addresses opportunities for improving the academic, cocurricular, and administrative elements of the Emory undergraduate student experience and collaborates to implement solutions. Meeting monthly, the council will identify metrics against which to measure success.
