A brief description of the practice of including community service on transcripts, if applicable:

Emory offers several courses with a service-learning component. These courses require a certain number of community service hours and are featured on the student's transcript. In some cases, students may work out an agreement with an academic dean in which service involvement will count for course credit. Students that participate in community service for course credit will see that designated on their transcript.

A brief description of the institution’s employee community service initiatives:

Emory Community Giving offers employees the opportunity to help over 400 nonprofit community groups which address an array of health, human-service, community, and environmental needs. The program yearly solicits employee contributions from October through December. Employees can donate through payroll deduction or write a check.

Volunteer Emory is a program of the Office of Student Leadership & Service that facilitates service opportunities and social justice work for Emory students, faculty, staff and alumni.

The Emory University Hardship Fund is designed to assist staff and faculty members who are experiencing a temporary financial hardship due to a catastrophic event. The Fund is funded by voluntary charitable donations from faculty and staff as well as any other entity wanting to assist Emory community members facing unexpected financial challenges.
