Salovey Will Speak in Greenwich, Mar. 7

Yale president Peter Salovey '86 Ph.d. will speak in Greenwich, Mar. 7
Yale Westchester alumni and guests are invited to join a discussion with Yale president Peter Salovey '86 Ph.d. at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Tuesday, Mar. 7 at 6:30 pm. The event will be hosted by the Yale Alumni Association of Greenwich. 

Guests will attend a reception before Salovey's remarks and have an opportunity to view the works of Alfred Sisley, the French impressionist master of the 19th century.

Salovey, who will speak from 7:30-8:30 pm, will provide updates on campus activities and initiatives. Yale alumni can submit questions and topics for Salovey to address when they register for the event.

As most alumni know, the pulse of Yale seldom sits still. In New Haven, Yale prepares for the opening of two new residential colleges (Franklin and Murray) and next month will admit the largest freshman class in its history (the Class of '21). 

Calhoun College will be renamed Hopper College in the wake of a special committee's presentation of guidelines for renaming campus structures.  Commons in the center of campus prepares to close for renovations as it transforms into a new student center, the Schwarzman Center. Yale sports will have a representative in the Ivy League's first-ever basketball tournament in Philadelphia early March. And many are raving about the opening of spacious, new facilities at the School of Music.

Salovey also spoke to Yale alumni in Greenwich just days after he was inaugurated as president in Oct., 2013.  His talk was entitled "A More Unified Yale."

Participants must purchase tickets ($50) to attend the event. Click YALE-GREENWICH to register.
