THE NEWS

  • With fall semester comes the start of a new job search for many students, especially those who belong to the class of 2014. But as these students log online to peruse career opportunities for the summer or year, they may face a stark white page that is utterly unfamiliar. Earlier this year, Undergraduate Career Services launched a new online resource system for students and alumni that aims to streamline communication between students and employers. The new system — Yale UCS Symplicity — replaced the previous eRecruiting platform and runs in a similar format.
  • This year the Yale Cabaret, the primary home for extracurricular productions mounted by students at the School of Drama, will follow a less hierarchical managing structure than in past years. The theater will be run by three co-artistic directors, Whitney Dibo DRA ’14, Kelly Kerwin DRA ’15 and Lauren Dubowski DRA ’14, while the Cabaret had one head artistic director and two associate artistic directors last year. All three women said their experiences working in collaboration-based theater prior to attending the drama school informed their desire to bring this leadership model to the Yale Cabaret.
  • Last week, the University received a $2.5 million fund from capital support group Connecticut Innovations, spelling good news for students hoping to jumpstart their own business ventures on campus. Partnering with the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute and early-stage venture fund support group Elm Street Ventures, CI established the fund to assist the most promising ventures emerging from YEI’s programs, including the highly selective 10-week Summer Fellowship Program and the Venture Creation Program. Using this new “YEI Innovation Fund”, student teams apply to receive up to $100,000 to further develop their businesses.
