As a staff member at Yale, you are invited to network with your colleagues and stay in touch with campus news and events.

Stay in touch with colleagues

Building a strong network is important to your career at Yale. Make time to connect with your colleagues. Here are a few ideas:

Send an electronic Yale greeting card

Make a colleague’s day: say “Happy Birthday”, “Congrats”, “Thank You”, and more. Here’s how to send an electronic Yale greeting card:

  1. Visit the Yale Greeting Card web page.
  2. To send your first e-card, you’ll need to create an account by clicking “Join NotesPlus” in the right corner of the screen. Then, click on the confirmation e-mail that is sent to your inbox.
  3. To create a card: select an image, type a note and the recipient’s e-mail address, and press “send.”

Tip: Click on “Notebook” in the upper left corner to keep track of the cards that you’ve sent, received, and archived.

Let’s do lunch

With so many green spaces around campus, pack lunch and connect with a colleague or dine at one of New Haven’s many restaurants or Yale’s dining establishments.

Join an affinity group

Yale affinity groups are a great way to connect with colleagues. Yale’s special interest groups host social events, career building workshops, volunteer activites, and speaker series, to name a few.

Get involved

Volunteer for your department’s green team to get to know others who you may not work directly with every day. Other opportunities include helping to host a department-wide United Way fundraising activity or getting involved with a university-wide event such as commencement–to name just a few.
