Yale University facts and figures - more on Yale 2010 Profile
Founded in 1701, Yale is a university with honored traditions. In the diversity of its students, its global outlook, and its outstanding research, it is also a university of compelling change.
Some people think of Yale primarily as an undergraduate school, Yale College. Yale is indeed well known for the strength of its college, where its 5,200 students learn to lead and serve not only through a strong academic curriculum but also by participation in a host of extracurricular activities, from athletics to community service. Yale students are famous for forming and shaping their own clubs and organizations. More than 240 student organizations now exist, some over a century old and others formed just this year.
Yale is also a major research university. Led by a distinguished faculty, it carries on its education and research on the graduate level in its graduate and professional schools: the graduate school of arts and sciences, divinity, engineering & applied science, forestry & environmental studies, law, management, medicine, nursing, public health, and four schools of the arts: architecture, art, drama, and music. The University is home to one of the world’s great libraries and three outstanding public museums and galleries—Peabody Museum of Natural History, the University Art Gallery, and the Center for British Art—that help to enrich the cultural climate of the university and city.
Since its founding in 1701, Yale has been committed to the idea of a liberal education. Such an education prepares students for an unpredictable future—not by training them for particular careers but rather by teaching them how to learn. More than 2,000 undergraduate courses in the liberal arts and sciences are offered each year by over sixty-five departments and programs, forming a curriculum of remarkable breadth and depth. The faculty is dedicated to undergraduate teaching, and many of Yale’s most distinguished professors teach introductory-level courses.
With two major art museums, a critically acclaimed repertory theater, state-of-the-art concert halls, and world-renowned Schools of Architecture, Art, Drama, and Music, Yale University is an internationally recognized center for the visual and performing arts.
Indeed, Yale was one of the first American universities to foster the arts. As one of the nation’s foremost institutions of higher learning, it has for over a century been the training ground for some of the country’s most distinguished actors, playwrights, artists, museum professionals, architects, musicians, and composers. Chuck Close, Norman Foster, Maya Lin, Richard Stoltzman, Meryl Streep, and Wendy Wasserstein are just a handful of the graduates of Yale’s professional schools of the arts who have made lasting contributions in their chosen fields.
From the Yale Daily News, the country's oldest daily college newspaper, to the Yale University Football Team, first collegiate football team to ever reach 800 wins, there is no shortage of extracurricular activities at Yale. A journey to Off-Broadway Theater or one of the many recital halls would lead students to one of Yale's many theatrical productions or dance performances. Students can choose to join the Yale Student Orchestra, student bands, one of the 12 a cappella groups, the over 40 choruses on campus, or the over 45 Varsity or Junior Varsity teams.
Yale's residential college system, now more than seventy years old, is perhaps the most distinctive feature of the College. Before freshman year, all incoming undergraduates are assigned to one of Yale's twelve residential colleges. The residential colleges allow students to experience the cohesiveness and intimacy of a small school while still enjoying the cultural and scholarly resources of a large university; the residential colleges do much to foster spirit, allegiance, and a sense of community at Yale.
