Program Leadership


Welcome from the Director

Eric Ortlund

The best thing about the Emory MSP graduate program is the sense of community. Program events, including retreats, research symposia & alumni symposia, are all organized by the students. In addition to being fun, these events provide a platform for the exchange of ideas, the formation of new collaborations, and the promotion of the program's strong sense of community. Additionally, at program events where alumni are present, these events serve as significant networking opportunities where students can make important connections and learn about career pathways beyond graduate school. The MSP program at Emory is blessed to consistently attract outstanding young scholars who are enthusiastic about cultivating the strong sense of community that has been developed in this program over the past several decades.
