Yale President Peter Salovey ’86 Ph.D. has launched Access Yale, a two-year initiative to raise $200 million for financial aid at Yale. To date, nearly $50 million has already been raised toward the initiative, which spans Yale College, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the 12 professional schools.
The initiative comes at a time when Yale is planning the first major expansion of the undergraduate student body since the admission of women in 1969.
“Access Yale is an opportunity to secure the resources we need to expand our undergraduate program, make our financial support more competitive at the graduate and professional level, and enable more of our students, throughout the university, to graduate without excessive debt,” said Salovey. “I am thankful to our alumni, parents, and friends who have already contributed to this important effort.”
