“As the academic world becomes more global and more digital, the most successful universities will activate and join networks that are appropriate for them – and work to develop new ones in collaboration with other universities,” said President Peter Salovey during the plenary session at the Universia International Presidents Meeting hosted by Banco Santander in Rio de Janeiro in July.

During a weeklong trip to Brazil, President Salovey made this statement a reality, meeting with academic and government leaders, formalizing partnerships with leading universities and institutions, and connecting with Yale alumni and affiliates through the Yale Club of Brazil.
