Student Liaisons

The Student Liaison Program offers Yale students a chance to expand their horizons far beyond traditional academic opportunities, glimpsing the global impact of a World Fellows cohort, while working directly with and being mentored by an individual Fellow. Imagine having access to a truly accomplished global citizen; one who is already driving systemic political changes, creating more sustainable ecosystems, or upending human rights inequalities (just a few examples).

During the fall term, while the World Fellows are on campus, Liaisons assist Fellows with everything from campus integration to event planning, while benefiting from the mentorship each Fellow provides in return. The lasting relationships between Liaisons and World Fellows drive meaningful experiences on campus and ongoing impact around the globe.

How To Apply: The deadline to apply for the Fall 2023 Liaison Program has passed.
Expectations of Liaisons:
  • Integrate and introduce your World Fellow to Yale student life through the residential colleges, campus groups, social activities, etc
  • Assist your Fellow in organizing campus talks, including marketing and publicizing these events to bring together those interested in the topic of discussion
  • Develop opportunities for World Fellows to engage with students across campus
Eligibility: The World Fellows Student Liaison program is open to all Yale College students who are actively enrolled in the Fall 2023 semester.
2023 World Fellow Residential College Affiliations: Student Liaisons will be paired with the World Fellow(s) affiliated with their residential college, or they may apply to work with a specific Fellow.
