Yale-NUS College’s next president, Tan Tai Yong, has already left mark on community, curriculum

Tan Tai Yong, executive vice president for academic affairs at Yale-NUS College, has been named as the college’s next president by the Governing Board, following an extensive global search.

Tan, who will take up his new post on July 1, succeeds Pericles Lewis, the college’s founding president. Lewis will return to Yale to assume the combined role of vice president for global strategy and deputy provost for international affairs in the fall.

The announcement of the new president-elect was made March 14 by the co-chairs of the Presidential Search Committee: former Yale president Richard C. Levin, now chief executive officer of Coursera, and Tan Chorh Chuan, president of the National University of Singapore (NUS).
