We Are Yale

We come from many backgrounds and places. We have many perspectives, talents, and strengths.

Our differences and our commonalities help make Yale a great university—a place where each of us belongs and where we are free to explore the breadth of our intellectual curiosity, the depth of our humanity, and the potential of our scholarship, research, work, and practice.

Our sense of belonging is critical to the strength of our community and the quality of a Yale education. It makes it possible to ask important questions and offer new answers.

Each member of the Yale community should expect:

  • Equal opportunity to contribute, learn, grow, and succeed.
  • Rejection of harassment or discrimination, and accountability for actions.
  • Open exchange of ideas across a range of intellectual, historical, and social perspectives.
