During James T. Laney's term of service, Emory grew from a solid regional teaching institution into a major research university. By most salient measures -- endowment, student enrollment, faculty size, and square footage -- Emory's growth was enormous. This book examines how Laney accomplished the transformation of Emory. Particular attention is given to Laney's commitment to Emory's being a moral community concerned with advancing the common good. This detailed analysis provides insight into Emory's maturation as a leading research university, into the moral leadership given by Laney, and into the development of higher education in this country.
