The Office of the Dean of the Chapel and Religious Life is the center of religious services and programs for the Emory campus. The deans work with the other religious leaders appointed by the various denominations and faith traditions. Members of the professional religious life staff are readily available for personal conferences on any matters of concern.
In recent years the study of Tibetan civilization has gained strength at Emory.
During a visit to Emory in 1998, His Holiness the Dalai Lama signed an agreement with then-Emory President William M. Chace to work toward furthering educational links between the University and institutions of higher learning operated by the Tibetan government in exile in India.
The developing program includes study abroad in Dharamsala, a student exchange, ongoing courses and research in Tibetan culture and philosophy, and an exchange between students and faculty.
October is Tibetan Awareness Month featuring events on various aspects of Tibetan culture.
Students interested in the study of Tibet and activities related to Tibet should contact the Asian Studies Program at 404.727.6280.
