Welcome to the Yale Club of Houston:


I am delighted to serve with the officers and directors of the Yale Club of Houston to bring you stimulating programs and opportunities for reconnecting with Yale this year.  All Yale alumni, parents, and anyone with an interest in Yale is welcome to join the club.

We will kick off the year with our annual Wine Tasting on September 7 (click HERE for all the details).

President Peter Salovey and faculty from data science will host the major Yale Explores event in Houston on October 16. This event will also showcase the varied Yale alumni groups in Houston, including YaleWomen, Yale Alumni Nonprofit Alliance (YANA), Yale Black Alumni Association (YBAA), Yale Latino Alumni Association (YLAA), Yale SOM alumni, Yale Law School alumni, and others so that you can extend your involvement with fellow alumni.

Our annual broadcast of The GAME will be hosted by the Yale Club on November 23.  Additional program events will be announced via email and posted on our website at Take a minute and check-out the upcoming club events!  At the website, you can also join or renew your Membership and become a supporter of the Yale Club (tax deductible!) and enjoy discounts to club events.  Your support allows us to host varied programs, such as the Yale Day of Service (Hermann Park last May) and host singing groups when they travel to Houston. Everyone is welcome to attend all club events.

Finally, David Kim and Leah Barton serve as co-chairs of the Alumni Schools Committee (ASC) if you are interested in interviewing candidates for Yale College.  You may visit the Yale Club of Houston website and click under “Get involved” to access their email link.

The Yale Club thrives with volunteers, and your involvement is always welcome!  Please feel free to contact me to suggest programs, and with any questions you may have.

Go Blue!

Very best,

Ed Hirs
President Yale Club of Houston  or
