Review: Colleges & Universities, Emory University is a private research university in metropolitan Atlanta, located in the Druid Hills section of unincorporated DeKalb County, Georgia. The university was founded as Emory College in 1836 in Oxford, Georgia by a small group of Methodists and was named in honor of John Emory, a well-known Methodist bishop. The university's mission statement is "to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity." The school initially struggled financially until a land-grant by Asa Candler, the president of the Coca-Cola Company, allowed the small college to move to metropolitan Atlanta in 1915 and become rechartered as Emory University. Today, the school consists of nine academic divisions: the College of Arts and Sciences, Oxford College, Laney Graduate School, School of Law, School of Medicine, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Rollins School of Public Health, Candler School of Theology, and the Goizueta Business School. Its close to 3,000 faculty members have received a variety of honors, including American Academy of Arts & Science Fellow, American College of Cardiology Master, Guggenheim Fellowship, National Book Award, National Academy of Sciences, National Humanities Medal, National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship, and Pulitzer Prize. The University has more than two million square feet of building space that has been certified by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program and has a commitment to having three-quarters of the food they serve on campus come from local or sustainable sources by 2015. The University holds the distinction of having one of the largest inventories by square footage of LEED-certified building space among campuses in America. The University received the 2008 Presidential Award for General Community Service, which is the highest federal recognition given to higher-education institutions for their commitment to community service, service-learning and civic engagement.
