Yale F&ES to Become the Yale School of the Environment

Leadership Instincts

Effective July 1, 2020, the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies will change its name to the Yale School of the Environment, a change that better reflects its established role as a leader in environmental scholarship, practice, and solutions. The change was approved by Yale President Peter Salovey and the Yale Corporation, the university’s board of trustees, on February 8.

 “For more than a century, the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies has been at the forefront of environmental and forest science and scholarship, and the new name reflects the school’s fully integrated, deep commitment to achieving sustainability and finding workable solutions to today’s global environmental challenges,” Salovey said.

 To honor this legacy and recognize the foundational importance of the School’s forestry program, President Salovey and the Yale Corporation also voted to establish “The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment.” The Forest School will be an integral part of the School of the Environment with dedicated faculty, curricula for the Master of Forestry and Master of Forest Science degrees, field programs, and forest properties, as well as a clear identity within the School of the Environment.
