Hundreds of alumni leaders explored Yale’s impact on humanity at the 2022 Yale Alumni Association Assembly and Yale Alumni Fund Convocation as they gathered on the Yale campus for the first time since 2019. The event’s theme, “Yale’s Global Initiatives: Impact for Humanity,” provided an opportunity for alumni to learn from their peers, discuss available resources, and gain deeper insights on Yale’s impact on the world. Exploration of how the university supports the Yale community to improve the human condition was highlighted throughout the two-day in-person event, held November 10-11.
In addition to Yale President Peter Salovey’s opening address, the event featured plenary sessions with faculty and alumni and breakout tours of the newest facilities on campus. Among its many highlights were a Yale Jackson School of Global Affairs Panel featuring Dean James Levinsohn and Ambassador Paul Simons. In his remarks, President Salovey said, “As we work toward the discovery of truth on campus, we can also see, with alarming consequence, the dissemination of falsehood around the globe. So we need to prepare leaders to be critical thinkers and to be informed by facts and analysis. It is Yale’s responsibility to share light and truth — to increase knowledge and understanding of pressing challenges.”
