Yale SOM Announces Donaldson Fellows Program and Calls for Nominations
The Yale School of Management announced the establishment of the Donaldson Fellows Program for Yale SOM Alumni, a fellowship aimed at honoring exceptional alumni, and named to honor the school’s founding dean, William H. Donaldson, who also founded an investment bank, served as an under secretary of state, and led a major insurance corporation, the New York Stock Exchange, and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Three Donaldson Fellows will be selected each year.
The school is currently seeking nominations for the inaugural class of Donaldson Fellows. Donaldson Fellows should be inspiring leaders with a wide range of experience across a variety of industries and sectors whose personal and professional conduct exemplify the three themes that define the Yale School of Management: Leading and Managing Across Boundaries; Transforming Positive Values into Personal, Professional and Institutional Commitments; and Bringing Creativity and Discipline to Complex Management Problems. The first Donaldson Fellows will take part in a two- to three-day residency at the school in April 2008 involving a series of dinner seminars, symposium and panel presentations, as well as meetings with students.
