August 19 marked the official beginning of the new academic year. Based on the current COVID-19 conditions in our region, Emory has made very difficult decisions that will affect all members of our community but are necessary to create a safe learning environment while upholding our core principles. (Updated September 15, 2020.)

Please see the Emory Forward website for the most recent changes to our fall 2020 plans. Please check our site regularly as we will continue to feature Oxford-specific updates and details as soon as that information becomes available.
