Class of 1972

Located in New Haven, Connecticut, Yale Law School is one of the world’s premier law schools. It offers an unmatched environment of excellence and educational intimacy in the form of world renowned faculty, small classes, limitless opportunities for clinical training, and strong encouragement of public service. The Law School is small by design; its impact on the world is measured by its accomplished graduates and its ongoing scholarship and outreach through numerous centers and projects. For students, the experience is unparalleled. The faculty-student ratio supports a vast array of courses and opportunities for independent research and student-organized seminars. Students get practical training by representing real clients in clinics starting in their first year. Throughout, a spirit of collaboration reigns. All first-term courses are ungraded, and subsequent classes are graded honors/pass/low pass. Yale Law School is unique among law schools in that it produces leaders in all walks of life: distinguished deans and faculty members at law schools across the country and the world; industry CEOs and corporate counsels; founders of nongovernmental organizations and other nonprofit entities; entrepreneurs; government servants in federal, state, and local offices and the judiciary--just a few areas in which our alumni's talent and passion and dedication have made a difference. Among the School’s graduates are U.S. Presidents and Supreme Court Justices; and among its far-reaching projects, the Information Society Project and the China Center.

Focused on the idea of direct and intensely creative education, the Corcoran College of Art + Design is the only college of art and design in the museum- and college-rich environment of Washington, D.C. It is one of the only art schools in the country fully integrated with a world-class museum. The Corcoran’s vibrant and active community includes more than 600 degree students pursuing a wide range of associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in the visual arts. Undergraduate studies culminate with an exhibition in the main galleries of the Corcoran’s own renowned museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, while MA candidates may produce a symposium, publicly defend their theses in our Atrium, or exhibit in the galleries. The College belongs to the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area and the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design; these affiliations extend our classrooms, allowing students access to coursework at other Colleges and Universities in Washington and beyond. The Corcoran’s career office provides support, development, and guidance, helping students secure internships and jobs at National Geographic, American Red Cross, the Smithsonian Institution, National Public Radio, and The Washington Post, just to name a few. The Corcoran’s Visiting Artist Series, in conjunction with our exciting roster of public programs open to all students, brings contemporary artists, designers, scholars, writers, and musicians to the Museum’s stages, podiums and galleries virtually each night of the week. The Corcoran is known for our international programs, including culturally diverse, intensive study-away opportunities in Mexico, Scotland, India, Israel, El Salvador, and more. We host a vibrant Artist in Residence program, with international faculty teaching and mentoring our students. The College also offers part-time credit and non-credit classes for teens and adults through its Continuing Education department and offers an innovative Study Away at the Corcoran opportunity for visiting college students during the summer. Classrooms and studio spaces are located alongside museum exhibitions in the Corcoran Gallery of Art and amid the galleries and design showrooms surrounding our historic Georgetown campus.

Trustee
1992 - 1994

Corcoran Gallery of Art In the words of its founder, the Corcoran is “dedicated to art.” Its museum presents, interprets and preserves the art of our times and of times past; its college of art nurtures and helps shape new generations of artists and designers. Education is a central focus, not just in the Corcoran’s classrooms but in its galleries and throughout the greater Washington region. Though American art is the collection’s emphasis, the art of other nations and cultures is, when appropriate, acquired and exhibited. The Corcoran is committed to making the historic art in its collections and the emerging art of our time accessible and understandable to the broadest possible audience through innovative exhibitions and educational programming, systematic research and rigorous scholarship. Its many activities emphasize the combined resources of its museum and college, and are directed toward diverse communities with widely differing educational and socio-economic backgrounds. Though proud of its important place in the international world of art history and scholarship, the Corcoran is ever mindful of its special obligation to serve the greater Washington region, especially its artists and its young people.
