Caring for the Yale Varsity Athlete

To all new and returning student athletes,

On behalf of Yale College and all of my colleagues in the Yale College Deans Office, I extend a warm welcome to you.

Yale has a long and rich tradition of athletic competition as an integral part of the fabric of campus life. Your accomplishments are a source of inspiration to all of us, and we thank you for honoring Yale through your commitment to excellence on the field and off. 

Nothing is more important to all of us than the health and well-being of Yale students. To make sure that you have the best chance of achieving your highest academic and athletic goals, we have assembled an outstanding team of professionals whose entire focus is caring for student athletes. I encourage you to explore the information on this site and to take advantage of the many resources available to you.

Thank you, and best of luck in your endeavors!
