Feature stories:

Time of Arrival

For a variety of social, institutional, and historical reasons, Yale has lagged behind its peers in the number of tenured female professors on the faculty. But the recent appointment of seven women to senior positions, as well as a new hiring initiative, suggest that the University is making progress towards greater diversity at the head of, as well as in, the classroom.


Bringing Home Baby

Increasing numbers of Americans are finding international adoption to be an attractive way to build a family. But the children brought home from Russia, China, and some other parts of the world may have special medical needs unfamiliar to American doctors. A new clinic led by a Yale pediatrician is helping ensure that those needs are met.


An Artist Guarding the Art

As the new director of the Yale University Art Gallery, artist Jock Reynolds wants to narrow the gap between people who make art and people who present it. Can he make the museum both more inviting to visitors and more hospitable to contemporary art?
