Search for the Next President of Yale University

On August 31, 2023, President Peter Salovey announced that he decided to make this his final year as Yale’s twenty-third president and return to the Yale faculty full time at the end of the 2023-2024 academic year. The board of trustees has launched the search for President Salovey’s successor.

The search committee benefits greatly from a robust and inclusive process. Members of the committee are actively seeking input from the Yale community, and they are engaging with students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Confidential webforms are available for community members to provide feedback at any time during the process.

Submit Your Input

The committee would especially like to develop a stronger understanding of the Yale community’s views on the following key questions:

  1. What are your aspirations for Yale as a continuing leader in higher education in the world?
  2. What are the most important attributes of the next president of Yale?
  3. What do you think are the most important areas of focus for Yale to impact the critical challenges facing the world today?

You may respond to the questions above at a listening session or by submitting your response through the webform.
