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.
