Lessions...From, With and For Yalies

Sunday, November 15, 2015 from 1 - 5 pm

Whitney Humanities Center (53 Wall Street, New Haven, CT


For students with a passion for the humanities, our November 15th HIA workshops offer a special opportunity: an afternoon deep dive into a humanities-oriented career think-tank. At our HIA workshops, Yale College and G&P students will learn, debate and brainstorm side-by-side with like-minded, humanities-loving alumni/ae who will describe their career path challenges, and career/life-lessons-learned.  Our session kicks-off on Sunday afternoon (11/15) at 1pm with a plenary alumni panel discussion and Q&A followed by smaller, themed, alumni/ae-led workshops. Students and alums will then come back together from the workshops for a networking reception. Our HIA panel and workshops will be truly interactive. Humanities-loving students and alums will grapple with tough questions relating to how careers unfold. Attendees will interact with recent (and not-so-recent) alumni/ae with real-life experiences far beyond Yale’s campus. Afterwards, when the reception is done, via the Careers, Life, and Yale blog ( attendees can sustain dialogues and share thoughts with the rest of Yale.
