Vice President for Campus Services

Matthew Early, vice president for Campus Services, oversees a division of more than 800 dedicated, diverse, and hardworking individuals on Emory University's Druid Hills campus, as well as the Oxford, Grady, Briarcliff, and Clairmont campus locations. Campus Services provides planning, design, and construction services, which include campus planning, project management, and interior design and graphics; Facilities Management includes building maintenance, custodial services, engineering and utilities services, and grounds and hardscape services; Transportation and Parking Services is responsible for parking and moving faculty, staff, students, and visitors throughout the Emory community; Public Safety is responsible for police, fire safety, and EMS services as well as access control; Real Estate Services, which includes the management of Executive Park; Customer Relations and Support, which oversees the Work Management Center; and the Office of the University Architect, which ensures continuity in the design and aesthetics of our built environment.

Campus Services is recognized nationally for its dedication to sustainability. Emory holds the distinction of having one of the larger inventories by square footage of LEED-certified building space among campuses in America. Thirty of our buildings are LEED Certified: 13 gold, 13 silver, and four certified. Emory was one of four local employers honored for its longstanding efforts to promote transportation programs that include a shuttle service that carries 3.4 million riders annually and is fueled in part on biodiesel from Emory’s cooking oil, a bike and car-sharing program, and a successful carpool/vanpool program. The first water reclamation system in the United States was built at Emory’s main campus, capable of reclaiming more than 140 million gallons annually, nearly 40 percent of Emory’s water demand for heating, cooling, and toilet flushing. 

Before coming to Emory in August 2010, Early worked at Columbia University in New York, where he served as the vice president for facilities operations, overseeing building maintenance and repair, grounds, engineering services and commissioning, sustainability, energy management, and environmental compliance.

Early is a professional civil engineer and a 1987 graduate of the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. He holds an MS in engineering, with a minor in construction management from the University of California-Berkeley, and he has an MBA from the University of La Verne.
