Feature stories:

Probing the Presidency

In the wake of Benno Schmidt’s abrupt resignation as President of Yale last spring, the University has begun the task of finding a successor. The process has been made more difficult than ever by the changes that have come over the position in recent decades. Can any one man—or woman—be all things to today’s Yale?


A Century of Women at Yale

To mark the 100th anniversary of the admission of women to Yale’s doctoral programs, the Graduate School in April held a three-day symposium that drew some of the country’s leading scholars. In the view of one prominent alumna who participated, the University still has a long way to go before women can consider themselves an integral part of the institution.


Minister of Change

Although Frederick Streets has taught at the Divinity School for five years, his primary focus has been his congregation in the beleaguered city of Bridgeport. As the first Baptist and the first black to be named to the Yale chaplaincy, Streets brings a new perspective to the position.
