When & Where
Yale Alumni Journalism Association (YAJA)
The Yale Alumni Journalism Association (YAJA) provides a forum for Yale alumni to participate in the national conversation on the role of a free press. More than 1000 Yale graduates currently working in news media organizations in print, television, or on-line.
Since the founding of Yale University, its alumni have contributed their talents to the field of journalism. Some became proprietors of newspapers and magazines; others became correspondents and editors, producers, and commentators. They were, by and large, generalists who provided intelligence, intellectual curiosity and the ability to communicate. They have collectively created a body of work of the highest quality.
The news business is the only private enterprise in American life that has a Constitutional protection -- the First Amendment. That distinction carries with it a moral obligation to responsibly serve the public interest, and strengthen the ethical standards of news gathering. YAJA will bring talented, diverse journalists to campus, and other locations, for programs, symposia and interaction.
