Yale Presidential Inauguration

Don't miss the inauguration of Peter Salovey as Yale's 23rd President! Festivities live from New Haven will be broadcast on the Yale YouTube channel starting at 10:30 am PDT on Sunday, October 13.


The Yale community will celebrate the Inauguration of Peter Salovey ’86 Ph.D. as the 23rd President of Yale University next Sunday, October 13. We want to make sure that everyone in the Yale alumni family knows about the ceremony and other key Inauguration events next weekend.

The Inauguration Ceremony will be viewable around the world via live broadcast on the Yale University YouTube channel. The broadcast begins on Sunday, October 13, at 1:30 p.m. EDT. It will show the procession across campus at 1:45 p.m. and the ceremony in Woolsey Hall at 2 p.m. We hope alumni at a distance from campus will join the celebration online by watching on YouTube. It will also be archived online for later viewing.

If you are near New Haven, we warmly invite you to join with others in the Yale community who will gather to watch the Inauguration Ceremony on large screens in Battell Chapel at Elm and College Streets; in front of the President’s House at 43 Hillhouse; and in Burke Auditorium at Kroon Hall, 195 Prospect Street. All are also warmly invited to a festive block party on Hillhouse Avenue (between Sachem and Trumbull Streets) after the ceremony, from 3–5 p.m., with music, dancing, refreshments, and the opportunity to greet President Salovey and his wife, Marta Moret ’84 M.P.H.

In addition, we cordially invite all alumni and friends nearby to enjoy a special pre-inauguration Campus-wide Open House on Saturday, October 12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All are welcome for a series of special events, performances, tours, and other activities at Yale’s museums, libraries, graduate and professional schools, all twelve residential colleges, and other venues. You can view the full listing for the open house on the Presidential Inauguration website. Wherever you live, we encourage you to share this open house information with friends who may be interested – and able to come to New Haven.

As President Salovey has said, “This is a most exciting time for our institution.” It truly is. The upcoming Inauguration will celebrate the diversity of our Yale community – in New Haven and around the world – and the unifying spirit of inspiration that draws us all together. We hope that you will join the celebration, online or on campus.
