The Yale Arab Alumni Association was founded in 2007 in Beirut, Lebanon, by a group of Yale alumni dedicated to strengthening ties between Yale University and the Arab World. The Association is the sole independent, shared interest group serving Yale alumni living and working in the region. Alumni with a professional, academic, or personal interest in the Arab world are invited to our community.
YAAA serves its members and carries out Yale’s educational mission in this vital part of the world with a range of social and educational events, from Feb Club to fellowships to conferences to expert panels.
