Luce Center

Campus: Druid Hills in Atlanta

Namesake: Henry Luce Foundation

Date: Construction in 1998

Purpose: Administration

The Henry Luce Foundation underwrote a significant portion of the cost of this building up the hill from the Miller-Ward Alumni House (MWAH).

The building replaced the original Emory headquarters of Scholars Press, a brick Georgian-style building that was later incorporated into MWAH. Scholars Press had outgrown its home.

The Luce Center also houses the press's founding organizations, the American Academy of Religion, the Society of Biblical Literature, and the Aquinas Center, as well as the university's Emeritus College.

Emory owns the land under the building.
