Newest graduate class arrives

On August 29, the Jackson School welcomed its new class of graduate students to Yale during the matriculation ceremony. The diverse group of students represents nearly 20 countries—53 percent of the class is made up of international students. “The experiences you bring to our community are stunning,” said Jim Levinsohn, dean of the Jackson School and Charles W. Goodyear Professor of Global Affairs. “Learn from each other because you have so much to offer one another. You will have lots of demands on your time, but I hope you take some of that time to build relationships.”

School’s campus expands

Following a summer refresh including new paint, carpets, and furniture, the house located at 46 Hillhouse Avenue is now part of the Jackson School campus. The building will primarily be used for offices and activities related to the school’s International Security Studies research hub. Renovations on other Jackson buildings on Hillhouse Avenue, including T. M. Evans (#56) and Steinbach Hall (#52), are ongoing. The school will continue to occupy Horchow Hall, also located on Hillhouse Avenue.
