About YDS

Yale Divinity School exists to address the most pressing issues facing humanity in the 21st century. We engage this challenge through scholarship of the highest caliber and through the cultivation of faith. I believe it is this potent, unique combination—faith and intellect—that makes our school powerfully relevant and ideally positioned to take on the challenges of the future.
