President Peter Salovey and a delegation of Yale faculty members and staff are traveling in Ghana and Kenya this week, March 10-16. The visit takes place during the five-year anniversary of the Yale Africa Initiative (YAI), an ongoing effort to prioritize and further expand Yale’s collaborations in Africa that Salovey announced in 2013 when making his inaugural address. Since then, Yale has extended its partnerships throughout the continent with an emphasis on educational exchange and innovative research that addresses global challenges.

Salovey believes firmly that working with African institutions provide immense opportunities for sharing knowledge and ideas, benefiting both Yale and its research and educational partners.
