Community Outreach

The Advisory Committee wants to hear from all members of the Yale community about their ideas for the Schwarzman Center.

In September and October, the Committee will be embarking on a “listening tour” to gain insights about how the Center can be realized to be an extraordinary space that will bring students from throughout the university together. There will be a number of opportunities to share ideas, including at information sessions held across campus for all members of the Yale community and during visits by the Committee to each residential college and school as well as other departments and groups.
