The International Room at Yale's Sterling Library.

As Yale enters its fourth century, our goal is to become a truly global university— educating leaders and advancing the frontiers of knowledge not simply for the United States, but for the entire world.

The globalization of the University is in part an evolutionary development. Yale has drawn students from outside the United States for nearly two centuries, and international issues have been represented in its curriculum for the past hundred years or more. But creating the global university is also a revolutionary development—signaling distinct changes in the substance of teaching and research, and demographic characteristics of students, the scope and breadth of external collaborations, and the engagement of the University with new audiences.

The International Room was created to showcase Yale's many and varied international programs. Displays within the room feature the international activities of Yale’s schools, centers, museums, and libraries, as well as individual faculty, students, and alumni.

Yale-affiliated or Yale-sponsored groups can book the room for short meetings, day-long seminars, lectures, conferences, receptions and other events with an international focus. Click here to reserve the room.
