Collaborating for Impact
Today’s challenges call for innovative and cross-disciplinary solutions—the kind that arise from human connection. In an era of rapid change, we make progress through the sharing of ideas, the spark of inspiration, and the understanding that arises when we welcome diverse perspectives. We grow because discoveries in physics lead to advances in materials science and new techniques in medical imaging. Insights from economics and political science inform environmental and social policy, and psychology helps us shape messages to address climate change. Yale combines a culture of collaboration with a commitment to people, ensuring that the insights of one field can rapidly drive breakthroughs in another. The results are ethically grounded, creative solutions for today’s pressing global problems.
