We Are Called
Yale Divinity School serves humanity through academic, moral, and religious leadership. Now, when our work matters more than ever, we seek to extend our reach and deepen our impact as part of the larger Yale campaign, “For Humanity.”

The Campaign for Yale Divinity School: “We Are Called”

At YDS, research, teaching, and learning are driven by dedication to all creation. As we rise to meet new and enduring challenges, we unite in a commitment to bring the knowledge and love of God into the world. Together, we lift up all people and living things.

Whatever your calling is, join us in creating a flourishing future for all. 

Campaign Goals

Student Support

Through enhanced scholarships and stipends, we seek to free our students to pursue their callings without financial constraints. 

Academic Programs

At the top of their fields and in demand, our professors play a key role in the future of religion and Christianity. We seek to create new endowed professorships to recruit and retain accomplished scholars and support their research and teaching.  

Justice Initiatives

Through social justice initiatives ranging from scholarships to research grants to prisoner education, we seek to lift up the voices of people who have been excluded and bring justice to those for whom it has been too long denied.

The Living Village Project: A Sustainable Living-Learning Community 

In this time of climate crisis, we are creating community in a residential complex of regenerative buildings. Giving back to the environment more than it takes, the zero-waste Living Village answers one of the most profound theological challenges of our time and sets new standards for sustainability.
