The Yale Peabody Museum extends a warm welcome to Yale’s new president, Peter Salovey, whose term as the 23rd president of Yale University began in July 2013. President Salovey succeeds Richard C. Levin, who served as president of Yale from 1993 to 2013.  As part of the celebrations of President Peter Salovey's inauguration ceremonies this fall, the Peabody’s Fiesta Latina will be part of a campus-wide open house on Saturday, October 12, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. This open house across Yale will allow our neighbors to explore not only the University’s many museums, lecture venues and concert halls, but also those campus spaces, like the residential colleges, that are not usually open to the public. Watch the Yale website ( and our social media sites in the weeks ahead for details about scheduled events and activities.
