Die Yale Corporation


Was ist die Yale Corporation?

Yale's Charter provides that its governing body, known legally as "The President and Fellows of Yale College" - or, more simply, as "The Corporation" - "shall have the government, care and management of the College ... and make such reasonable laws ... as they think fit and proper for the instruction and education of the students."
The Corporation comprises 19 members:
Three members ex officiis: the President of the University and the Governor and the Lieutenant Governor of the State of Connecticut.
Ten "Successors to the original Trustees", who elect their own successors. Their terms on the Corporation are limited by their own vote to two six-year terms, except that upon recommendation of the President in special circumstances a Successor Trustee may be elected to an additional term of up to three years. Successor Trustees must retire upon reaching age 70.
Six Alumni Fellows elected by the alumni as provided in the Miscellaneous Regulations.
In addition to the President, the officers of the University are: a Provost, a Vice President and Secretary, a Vice President and General Counsel, a Vice President for Finance and Administration, a Vice President for Development, and a Vice President and Director for New Haven and State Affairs.
