Namaste Yale Alumni Leader,

This is a special invitation to visit India as an Ambassador for Yale. We have an extraordinary opportunity this winter to continue our successful exchange programs with leading universities around the globe. Following our four country tour through Northern Europe this year, we will have worked with over 50 universities around the world to share best practices in alumni relations – having visited Lithuania, Latvia, the U.K., Paris, Australia, Japan, Turkey, and China – as Ambassadors for Yale since 2008.

Now, the Yale Global Alumni Leadership Exchange is going to India! We have an amazing experience planned for Chennai (the home of Elihu Yale for many years!) working with IIT Madras, in Mumbai working with IIT Bombay, and in New Delhi working with the new Ashoka. University (co-founded by a Yalie) with spectacular site seeing throughout the trip including the Golden Triangle to visit the Taj Mahal and Jaipur. The trip is scheduled for January 7 – 18, 2015.

YaleGALE needs you – to share your experiences, to inspire alumni in India! Let us know as soon as possible if you will join us on this unique opportunity to be an alumni leader.

India offers an experience in contrasts with the beauty of the Taj Mahal and the immense city of Mumbai. Our visit to Chennai will include a special visit to sites of special significance to Yale and special events with the alumni of IIT Madras which will be having a festival when we are there. And, once again, friends and family will get to take advantage of even more sightseeing such as seeing Mahabalipuram and the Elephanta Caves while the YaleGALE meetings are in session. Adding to the excitement of this trip, we are planning an extension of a few days to Varanasi, the holiest of the seven sacred cities in Hinduism.

Please complete your registration for the program, and, if you desire, the Varanasi extension by clicking on the following link:. FYI, the primary program begins on January 7th and returns on January 18th with an on-land double-occupancy fee of $4,450. The extension, running from January 19th to the 21st, is an additional cost (see registration form).

Boola, boola,
