Former President Jimmy Carter, 97, has been granted tenure at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, where he’s taught for 37 years, The Hill reports. 


The former president, a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, has been given a tenured appointment in four schools: the Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Rollins School of Public Health, Oxford College, and Candler School of Theology. The university wrote in a press release that the appointment “reflects the breadth of the president’s work and his impact on numerous fields.”


University president Claire Sterk said in a statement, “Across nearly four decades, he has given Emory the full measure of what it means to be a public intellectual and an engaged faculty member. He has viewed teaching as a revered calling — the same humble approach he has brought to every undertaking, large and small, across a lifetime.”

Carter and his wife, Rosalynn Carter, founded The Carter Center, a nongovernmental nonprofit, in partnership with Emory in 1982, the same year he accepted a professorship at the school just two years after leaving the White House.

“Having President Carter as part of the Emory experience has a profound impact on our students,” said Dwight A. McBride, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs.

“As a servant leader, he models inclusivity and empathy inside the classroom and beyond, and inspires our faculty and students to approach their research, teaching, and studies with a tireless sense of purpose.”
