Wishing a Warm Welcome to Yale’s New President

October 15, 2013 | News


On Sunday, October 13, 2013, Yale formally installed the University’s twenty-third President, Peter Salovey, who took office on July 1.

President Salovey takes the reins of one of the world’s leading elite institutions following two decades of leadership by President Richard Levin, who ushered in an era of record growth for both Yale and its ties and service to New Haven.

President Salovey’s welcoming remarks reflect his commitment to Yale’s students, service to its local and global communities, and to embracing the revolutions in teaching and learning in a global, digital age.  The weeklong series of events commemorating his inauguration also witnessed the awarding of the Nobel prize to two leading Yale faculty: James Rothman, in Physiology & Medicine, and Robert Shiller, in Economics.

We wish President Salovey a warm welcome, and many mores years of growth and success at the helm of Yale University!
