Dear Yale SOM Alumni:
Thank you for completing the survey last fall of all Yale SOM alumni. We were thrilled to have received over 1,800 responses, which constitutes about 27 percent of the alumni community, thus providing us with a strong basis from which to draw conclusions about our alumni engagement and involvement with the school. As promised, we have crystallized the key findings from the survey in a report for your review. We think you will find it interesting, and look forward to hearing any comments or feedback about the survey findings.
We hope that this survey is only the beginning of the conversation, and would like to use the survey findings to begin additional dialogues with alumni around the world about how their Yale SOM experiences have shaped them. It is our goal to repeat this survey in the next 3-5 years, and we will conduct a webinar on June 8, 2017 to discuss the survey findings further. We also plan to present the report and conduct chapter-based discussions on next steps that the school can take to continue engaging its alumni.
I hope you find the survey findings as illuminating as I did. I look forward to hearing your feedback.
