Our Mission

Our mission is to connect alumni with students, with the University, and with each other to strengthen the Yale science and engineering community.

To facilitate this mission, we are:

  • Promoting the highest quality of science and engineering at Yale in the students, faculty, facilities, and courses of study.
  • Assisting students financially with research grants, prizes, and scholarships.
  • Recognizing and publicizing the accomplishments of Yale students, faculty, and distinguished alumni with special awards and prizes.
  • Communicating with its membership in a timely and effective manner.
  • Encouraging interaction between Yale and its engineering and science alumni and between Yale and private and public enterprise.
  • Making strategic investments to enable or complement Yale initiatives which advance science and engineering.

We are alumni working together to strengthen Yale’s education of leaders for a new tomorrow, a world increasingly dominated by science and technology.
