A university committee has made strategic recommendations to bolster Yale’s position as a leading global research university and nurture scientific discoveries with the potential to improve the world. The report recommends bold priorities for investment and changes to organizational structure.

The University Science Strategy Committee (USSC) recently presented its findings to President Peter Salovey, Provost Ben Polak, and other university leaders. President Salovey has identified science as one of Yale’s top priorities.

For centuries, Yale faculty members and students have advanced scientific research and education. We will invest strategically in science and engineering in order to continue to push the frontier of human knowledge and discovery,” said President Salovey.
