Feature stories:

Blast from the Past

As a designer, Robert A. M. Stern ’65MArch cultivates an air of bygone gentility in his vacation houses. But as the new Dean of the School of Architecture, he’s aiming for anything but calm.


For God, For Country, and For Sale

Yale is undertaking an aggressive effort to license its logo for use on an ever-increasing array of products. The strategy is intended not only to enable the university to earn more of a share of the multibillion-dollar collegiate licensing market, but also to help Yale protect its good name against exploitation and bad taste.


The Second Curriculum

Yale’s intellectual offerings include far more than what appears in the course catalog. When classes are over, a wide variety of fellowship and lectureship programs bring speakers—from U.S. presidents to Nobel-laureate scientists—to campus for “off-duty” exchanges that enrich the daily educational fare. Consider tea-time with Toni Morrison or the Dalai Lama.
