Community


At LGS, we know that diversity enriches the academic environment. We recognize that innovative research and scholarship must include diversity in geography, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, age, spirituality, socio-economic status, disability, family status, opinions, thoughts, and ideas. Indeed, there are many communities within the Emory community.

There are a number of organizations and programs across campus that are dedicated to connecting you with a range of communities, resources, and support services. Explore some of them below, and be sure to visit our Current Students page for more information about support services offered by LGS and Emory, as well as living in Atlanta.

Laney Graduate Student Council

The Laney Graduate Student Council (LGSC) is the governing body of graduate students in the Laney Graduate School at Emory University. The LGSC hosts social events, supports chartered student organizations, funds events for graduate student groups, and holds open meetings once a month where students can request LGSC support for their activities. Additional, LGSC keeps an updated roster of all Laney registered student groups.
