The YSE Office of Development and Alumni Services connects our 5,000+ alumni to each other and YSE through annual Reunion Weekends, regional events and receptions, the alumni–student mentoring program, educational initiatives, alumni publications and communications, and volunteer activities.
Our office, located on the second floor of Sage Hall (Suite 20), is a resource and a base for alumni and friends of the School who come to campus for a visit. We look forward to seeing you the next time you are here at YSE!
Every time you get a new email address, relocate, or change positions, please send us an update. If you keep us updated, we’ll keep you updated!

YSE Alumni Cookbook

Nearly 150 recipes were shared by YSE alumni, along with stories and photos, to create this online cookbook.

“I think the variety of recipes is representative of the diversity and spirit of YSE and hope that many people have the occasion to read and utilize the stories and recipes that alumni provided.”

“I hope that more alumni will choose to join the ranks of ELM mentors. Not only is this an effective way to share your experience and continue to engage with the great people of YSE, but it also offers alumni an opportunity to further develop their skills as mentors, making them better ambassadors for the environment in all contexts."
