Cross Campus Toolkit

We at the Yale Alumni Association are excited to launch Cross Campus, Yale’s new, online networking, community-building, and mentoring program.

Cross Campus facilitates relationships across the entire university, including alumni-to-student and alumni-to-alumni connections. That’s why your support during and after the launch of Cross Campus is critically important to its success.

We’ve gathered ready-to-share content and suggestions for best practices to help you spread the word to your peers, alumni volunteers, and other members of the Yale community.
