We're so pleased that you'd like to attend our Student-Alumni Leadership Forum (SLF). Led by Yale alums, our SLF takes place on campus (at The Graduate Club) on Friday evening, March 3 and Saturday, March 4.

This will be Yale's 14th SLF, reflecting the hunger shown by Yale students and alums for insights on pure leadership. Attendees comprise a blend of students and alums. Past speakers have included: Rhodes and Marshall Scholars; an executive of the World Bank; and a retired Army General; Yale Medal winners; movers-and-shakers in financial services; entrepreneurs, not-for-profit and healthcare leaders; trial lawyers….and others. This time, discussion leaders will include: Vassar's next President, the founder of Blue State Coffee, Yale's VP/Secretary, and a bomb-defusing Navy vet..

Here’s a little more about what you can expect:

➢ Our SLF is entirely alumni-driven, starting an Friday evening (3/3) and ending on Saturday (3/4)

>  You'll interact with Yale alums conveying real-life leadership wisdom from far beyond campus

>   Everything is truly interactive; your breakout groups will grapple with tough leadership challenges

➢ Your application will lead directly to thought-provoking leadership challenges

➢ We’ll give you time and ways to connect with student/alumni leaders/attendees

➢ We'll later host a post-Forum dialogue on your views...and share them with the rest of Yale

What you tell us (below) will help us to create a terrific blend of attendees, breakout groups, etc.

We're grateful to you for investing your time to answer the questions below.
