Gregory L. Fenves was named Emory’s president in 2020. During his first year, he has led the university through the challenges of a global pandemic by setting priorities and establishing policies to unite the community, bolster public health and advance learning, teaching, research and creative expression, all while charting a course for Emory’s future. He has also focused on diversity, equity and inclusion, launching a series of university initiatives aimed at strengthening Emory’s commitment to social justice.

Fenves was drawn to Emory by its strengths as an academic community charged with providing a life-changing undergraduate liberal arts education and dynamic graduate and professional programs all at a world-class research university. He is deeply inspired by the university’s mission to create, preserve, teach and apply knowledge in the service of humanity.

With a 36-year career in higher education, Fenves has experience at top-tier research universities as a renowned academic researcher and professor, as well as an executive leader.  He’s demonstrated a strong commitment to advancing faculty development, interdisciplinary research, diversity and inclusion, and access and affordability—creating greater educational opportunity for talented students of all backgrounds.

Before arriving at Emory in August of 2020, Fenves was president of The University of Texas at Austin from 2015 to 2020.  Under his leadership, the university recruited world-class faculty, broadened cross-disciplinary research, raised four-year graduation rates to record levels, built the Dell Medical School, and significantly increased extramural research funding. As president of one of the largest doctoral-granting universities in  the nation, Fenves also elevated graduate education and increased support for graduate students. Prior to becoming president of UT, he was provost of the university and dean of the Cockrell School of Engineering.

Fenves was a faculty member at the University of California, Berkeley for 20 years and served as chair of its No. 1 ranked Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.  For his groundbreaking research in earthquake engineering and academic leadership, he was elected in 2014 to the National Academy of Engineering, the highest recognition for an engineer in the United States. He earned his undergraduate degree at Cornell University and graduate degrees at UC Berkeley.

Fenves is married to Carmel Martinez Fenves, a textile artist. They have two adult daughters, a son-in-law and two grandchildren, all of whom live in Austin, Texas.
