Theodore Fellowship

The Eustace D. Theodore '63 Fellowship

This Fellowship has been created and funded by the leadership of the Yale College Class of 1963 to honor classmate Eustace Theodore, an alumnus of Pierson College who went on to serve as Dean of Calhoun College from 1972 to 1981 and as Executive Director of the Association of Yale Alumni from 1981 to 1997.

In these positions, he not only achieved extraordinary distinction, but also won the friendship and admiration of a wide circle of students, faculty, administrators and alumni for his dedication to the permanent values of a Yale education and to the advancement of Yale as a leadership institution.

The Fellowship is awarded to an alumnus or alumna who exemplifies the distinct and diverse purposes to which alumni put their Yale educations. Fellows are chosen and the Fellowships are jointly administered by the Association of Yale Alumni and the Masters of Pierson and Calhoun Colleges.

Eustace D. Theodore '63 Fellows visit the Yale campus to meet with interested students and faculty, to conduct workshops and teas in either Pierson or Calhoun College, and to make a public appearance open to the entire University and alumni community.
