Alumni of the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences teach and conduct research in virtually all the world's most distinguished universities and serve in leadership roles in many non-academic settings. There are now over 30,000 living alumni of the Graduate School.
The Yale Alumni Association provides a number of resources to help alumni continue to participate in the Yale community, not only by remaining connected to their colleagues, but also by becoming involved in the professional development of new generations of scholars who graduate each year from Yale. The Office of Career Strategy also invites alumni to speak to graduate students about career opportunities in non-academic settings. Many alumni support the work of the Graduate School and their own individual departments by making contributions to the Annual Fund.
