Alumni & Affiliates

Alumni & Affiliates


More than 15,000 Yale graduates and affiliates live outside the United States in over 175 countries. Yale’s graduate or alumni network is made up of people who have received a degree from one of Yale’s schools or departments. Affiliates, those who have been visiting scholars, postdoctoral fellows on campus, or participants in one of Yale’s distinguished programs like the Yale World Fellows program or the Senior Leadership Programs, remain part of the Yale community even after leaving campus.

Following are ways for Yale graduates and affiliates to stay connected to the University and to the Yale network world wide:

Yale Day of Service

The global Yale Day of Service is one of a number of service opportunities for Yale alumni to lead — and to give back — by sharing their time and talents to make a difference. Yale Day of Service events have spanned New Haven to New Orleans and Anchorage to Zurich, featuring more than 3,500 members of the Yale community representing approximately 20 countries and activating at more than 250 service sites each year.

Yale Clubs

More than 120 U.S.-based and 40 international Yale Clubs and Associations — across six continents — help alumni connect “for the greater good.” These regional groups of Yale alumni, students, parents, and friends are run by volunteers and reflect Yale’s core values of education, community, and service.
