Nidia joined the Robert W. Woodruff Library in 2016. She is currently finishing her PhD in Sociology from the University of Chicago and has a BA in Public Policy from Stanford University. She has conducted research in public health, organizational behavior, and education policy and finance using both qualitative and quantitative research methods. For her own research on for-profit colleges and universities, Nidia relies on government documents (e.g. Congressional records, education and labor statistics), the archives of educational associations, and interviews with students and administrators. She has experience using qualitative coding software for her own projects and can help students who want to use such software to organize and analyze interviews they conduct in the field.

Language Center

The Emory College Language Center was founded in 2000 to provide support for the teaching and learning of languages and cultures at Emory.

Our Center provides faculty and students with technology facilities and staff, language lab and classrooms, faculty consultation and development, lecture events, and online learning resources.

Emory College Writing Center

The writing center staff helps students to improve the draft they are working on as well as future writing. The center sees improving the individual grade not as the end in itself, but as a by-product of improving the writing process.

Enrolled, accepted and graduates of the Emory MDP program are given access to the MDP Student Discussion Group on Facebook. This discussion group is separate from the public Emory MDP Facebook Page and can be used for sharing ideas, tips on courses, research, lifestyle, social engagements, job opportunities, etc. It is a private group that only Emory MDP students can access, view or search on facebook. MDP faculty, staff and non-MDP students are unable to view the contents.

To request access to the MDP Student Chat Room, email mastdev@emory.edu or visit the public Emory MDP Facebook Page.
