The university initiatives aim to extend the frontier of knowledge and tackle the most critical problems facing humanity. To accomplish these bold plans, Yale must recruit and retain preeminent faculty members who define their fields, attract the most promising students, hire excellent, innovative staff, and build a supportive community of alumni.
A strong sense of inclusion and belonging creates the conditions for community members to do their best work. The university works hard to cultivate this kind of environment, in support of its people and their pursuit of teaching, learning, research, and scholarship of the highest caliber. This priority plays a critical part in upholding Yale’s commitment to excellence, realizing its mission to improve the world, and pursuing its ambitions across every other university initiative.
