Advisory Committee

The Emory MDP program is fortunate to be supported by an Advisory Committee, which assists the team in charting the program's vision, approach, and core principles. The Committee comprises faculty - representing relevant schools and programs at Emory - as well as experienced development professionals who work in partner organizations. They come from a diversity of backgrounds and bring experience and expertise from a wide range of fields, and all of them have been significantly involved in the MDP program. Most importantly, they are colleagues who share our deep commitment to working towards social justice, sustainability, empowerment, wellness, and peace for all.
