THE NEWS

  • A new kind of reunion will happen at Yale this fall. An estimated 150 to 200 Ezra Stiles alumni are expected to attend Yale’s first residential college reunion Oct. 5-7 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ezra Stiles College. Depending on the success of the event — which will include tours of the recently renovated college, musical performances and panel discussions about Ezra Stiles and Yale — other colleges may follows Stiles’ example in years to come, organizers said.
  • As the School of Management faculty prepares to move to a new campus in December 2013, the University has taken steps to determine how the buildings it vacates will be used. The classroom facilities at the school’s central campus on 135 Prospect St. will remain classrooms, likely for use by Yale College, Deputy Provost for Academic Resources Lloyd Suttle said in a Wednesday email. He also said the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs will move to Horchow Hall at 55 Hillhouse Avenue, another building currently used by SOM.
  • New Haven Promise will dole out $323,807 in tuition checks this year — more than triple the amount the scholarship program distributed in 2011 — and at the same time relax its GPA requirements, administrators announced Wednesday. The Promise program, which awards college tuition scholarships to New Haven public high school graduates and is funded by Yale, has been implementing a tiered phase-in system for students.
