A Message From President Salovey

Dear Colleagues,

It is wonderful to celebrate Staff Spirit Week with you. The commitment and expertise you bring to work every day are what makes Yale such a vibrant and engaging community. It is only fitting that we take time to celebrate you. I am especially looking forward to seeing you at our Staff Appreciation Day event on Wednesday on Cross Campus.

As Yale’s staff, you contribute immeasurably to Yale’s mission. You advance and support research, scholarship, teaching, practice, and preservation that have the potential to transform society, deepen human understanding, and open doors to greater prosperity and well-being for millions. Simply put, you are vital to Yale.

On behalf of university leaders, thank you for all that you do. Enjoy the week!

With warm regards,

Peter Salovey
