A Thank You to Yale Faculty

The Association of Yale Alumni has long been committed to providing rich educational experiences for Yale graduates, opportunities for continued learning and personal growth.  We are extremely grateful that each year so many Yale faculty and administrators take time out of their busy schedules, as volunteers, to meet with alumni and Yale friends, both on campus and in locations around the world.  They not only share their expertise in lively, stimulating lectures and discussions, but also provide greater insight into the Yale of today.

We wish to publicly recognize and thank all the Yale University speakers who in 2014 gave so much to alumni and the AYA in a wide variety of ways – through club events, Yale reunions, educational travel, shared Interest and Identity programs, Graduate School alumni conferences, and more.  We praise their enthusiasm for alumni and their continued commitment to the AYA.

Warm regards from Yale,

Mark Dollhopf ‘77
