Other Advisory Bodies
In addition to the Yale Corporation, the university has several advisory boards whose members are alumni and friends of Yale.
These boards provide advice and counsel to the president on a number of topics. Some of the boards have a specific focus, such as the President’s Council on International Activities, which advises the president on Yale’s international initiatives. Others have a broad mandate, such as the University Council, which studies and makes recommendations to the president on a range of topics concerning university life.
