About the Talk:
In the 21st century, how does Yale sustain and strengthen its presence as a leader in higher education and world-class research? Join us for an evening with Pericles Lewis, Yale’s incoming Vice President of Global Strategy, as he discusses how the University envisions a strategy that engages and furthers Yale’s goals across vitally important international programs and research. He will address the work of the Paul Mellon Centre and Yale’s partnership with University College London.
