Faculty of Arts & Sciences

Groundbreaking, Life-Changing

Yale’s faculty members are groundbreaking scholars, field-shaping researchers, and life-changing teachers. In every discipline, they prepare tomorrow’s leaders and make fundamental discoveries that transform the lives of their students and the world beyond campus. Gifts to the Faculty of Arts and Sciences support this vital work, helping to bring the best minds together for teaching, discovery, and engagement with today’s biggest questions.

Attracting the Very Best

Constantly renewing and revitalizing, the FAS has welcomed 199 new ladder faculty members over the last five years: 65 in the humanities, 66 in the social sciences, and 68 in the sciences and engineering. Broadly accomplished and diverse in their academic expertise, these colleagues bring brilliance to the classroom. To attract and retain such talent, the FAS must offer competitive salaries, long-term stability, ongoing opportunities for learning and development, robust research funding, and a welcoming environment in which faculty can thrive. Your support—from flexible resources to the endowment of permanently named chairs—is essential.
