A little bit of URC history (courtesy of David
Pacini)
At its meeting in January, 1939, The Emory
Chapter of the American Association of University
Professors agreed unanimously to adopt a report
of the Committee on Faculty Research, and voted
to submit it to (then) Dean Goodrich C. White,
vice president of the University. The Committee
concluded emphatically that research is not
incompatible with good teaching and does not
compromise the ideal of the University to
facilitate mental and spiritual growth of its
studentsin service to God and man.
Yet the Committee also concluded that there was
shocking little productive research among
members of the faculty
5
To address this insufficiency, the Committee
recommended the creation of a University
Research Councilthat would administer a fund, as
large as possible, annually appropriated by the
University for the promotion of faculty research.
Apart from archival evidence of some preliminary
cooperative efforts with Agnes Scott College in
1941 (under the name of the University Center
Research Committee), the work of the University
Research Committee appears to have begun in its
own right in 1943. It approved grants totaling
1019. In May of 1944, the University Research
Committee issued its invitation to faculty to
apply for grants in aid for the second year,
with a reported budget of 1500.
By 1947, the Committee expressed concern over the
technical level of applicant submissions, and
agreed to encourage better form in written
applications.
6
Fast forward sixty years
  • The Emory University Research Committee is
    composed of sub-committees that review
    applications in five general academic areas
  • Biological and Health Sciences (Machelle Pardue,
    Chair)
  • Humanities (Walter Reed, Chair)
  • Social Sciences (Doug Bowman, Chair)
  • Math and Natural Sciences (Laura Finzi, Chair)
  • Visual and Performing Arts (Lori Teague, Chair)

Just in the past year (fall of 2006 and spring of
2007) the Emory University Research Committee
awarded sixty academic enrichment and career
development grants to faculty members following a
competitive two-tier review process.

The Levy Awards
The Levy Awards were established to recognize
outstanding scientific research contributions of
Emory faculty members. Albert E. Levy, now
deceased, had a daughter and a grandson, both of
who became scientists. Mr. Levys grandson
pursued a career in biomedical research at Emory.
32
The Levy Awards
Although he was a businessman, Mr. Levy admired
and supported the scientific efforts of his
family members and always encouraged the
performance of high quality scientific research.
In his honor, his daughter has provided resources
designated for recognition of faculty at Emory
who have contributed effectively to the
advancement of scientific knowledge.
33
The Levy Awards
Thus, the Levy Awards for Excellence in
Scientific Research were established. Each year,
awards for junior and senior faculty are selected
by the University Research Committee to recognize
outstanding research publications within the past
year.
