The YSE Alumni Association is led by an elected Alumni Association Board (AAB) of 20–25 alumni who represent the School’s more than 5,000 alumni around the world. The AAB meets monthly: in person two times per year and remotely throughout the rest of the academic year, in addition to various committee meetings as needed. The AAB is supported by staff in the YSE Office of Development and Alumni Services.
AAB members lead a number of initiatives focused on alumni-to-alumni, alumni-to-student, and alumni-to-University engagement. The AAB supports and generates efforts around diversity, equity, and inclusion at the School and among alumni; organizes field-based learning programs, educational opportunities, and volunteer opportunities for alumni; and communicates with the alumni body.
The Alumni Association Board also oversees the annual AAB nominations/elections process as well as the selection of the Distinguished Alumni and Prospect Street award recipients named at Reunion weekend each year. The YSE Alumni Association Board Scholarship is awarded annually to two current students who demonstrate outstanding community engagement and volunteer leadership. Alumni events and e-newsletters, along with the YSE magazine Canopy, keep alumni throughout the world in touch with each other and the School.
The YSE Alumni Association is also affiliated with the Yale Alumni Association (YAA), which serves all alumni of Yale University.
