Framing the Future

Summer 2000 cover  

Yale has spent the last decade pouring money into the renovation of its buildings, but figuring out how those buildings go together is a problem of another sort. After an exhaustive three-year study of the campus, a new “framework for campus planning” offers advice on how to accentuate the positive.


Hillhouse Avenue was once “America’s most beautiful street.” Having fallen into disrepair, the mansions have been reborn, and the University is now turning its attention to the streetscape.


Replanting Ecology

The modern science of ecology began at Yale, but it almost disappeared as a result of the rise of the molecular approach to biology. The creation of the ecology and evolutionary biology department is meant to help the discipline flourish.


An Earthly Undertaking
The AYA’s spring assembly brought delegates and faculty together to explore “Yale and the Global Environment.”
