Will Polarization Lead to Changes in the American Political System
At Emory University, you will find an Atlanta, Georgia-based private, national research university with a history of working collaboratively for positive transformation in the world through courageous leadership in teaching, research, scholarship, health care, and social action. Emory is known for its outstanding liberal arts colleges and superb professional schools, a long-standing commitment to great teaching by great faculty, and for having one of the leading health care systems in the South.
Emory is home to nearly 7,000 undergraduates, 20 percent of whom hail from Georgia. Every other state and 65 countries also are represented. Admission to Emory College is highly selective— about fourteen high school students apply for every opening in the first-year class—and Emory consistently ranks among the top 20 universities in the annual U.S. News & World Report survey.
Emory’s location in the vibrant, international city of Atlanta is a tremendous asset. Atlanta provides limitless opportunities for student learning and service, as well as fun and entertainment for students, faculty, and staff. Emory collaborates with numerous Atlanta-based organizations such as The Carter Center, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Removing obstacles to majority rule in the Senate, such as the filibuster, may be necessary as American politics continue to fracture into increasingly opposed parties according to Emory University political scientist Alan Abramowitz.
