- Emory University College of Arts and Science faculty, who account for 20% of the school's faculty, voted down a no confidence motion, 201-133, Friday against President James Wagner.
- Wagner landed in hot water after using the 1787 three-fifths compromise on slavery to illustrate a point on political compromise in Emory Magazine's winter edition, though he later apologized and said he considered slavery to be heinous and inhuman.
- In the wake of the vote, Emory's Board of Trustees remains strongly behind Wagner as the school's president.
