We look forward to welcoming you at the 2015 Forum. The goal of this event is to show the impact of World Fellows to Yale and the world, as well as to nurture and invigorate the YWF network. As the YWF Program joined Yale Jackson Institute for Global Affairs this year, YWFs will be participating in the Jackson Forum as a part of the program on Friday, October 16th. Santander Bank, N.A., through Santander Universities, is a sponsor of this event, and a longtime supporter of the Yale World Fellows.
