The Yale School of Management inaugurated Edward P. Evans Hall, its new campus, with a ceremony on January 9.
The ceremony opened Business + Society: Leadership in an Increasingly Complex World, a three-day conference celebrating the new campus. Yale SOM Dean Edward A. Snyder delivered remarks, along with four other speakers: Yale University president Peter Salovey PhD ’86; former Yale SOM dean and current faculty member Sharon M. Oster; founding Yale SOM dean William Donaldson YC ’53; and William Beinecke YC ’36, a philanthropist and longtime supporter of the school.
Edward P. Evans Hall, Snyder said, will help Yale SOM fulfill its founding mission to educate leaders for business and society and its aspirations to become a truly global business school and one closely connected to its home university.
“We find ourselves now in this unified space,” Snyder said. “This space with extended lines of sight, with energy, with cohesion, with the ability to connect across campus, and with the ability to connect globally.”
