Visiting Fellows are prominent, high-profile leaders: government officials, their staff members, advocates, and/or journalists.
Visiting Fellows come to Yale several times throughout the year to engage with relevant faculty and students about the intersections of inequality and major problems in American civic life. Further, the Visiting Fellows participate in and occasionally lead public events open to the larger Yale community.
Throughout the year, the Fellows are asked to present their initiatives, participate in the intellectual life of the center, meet with center affiliates, lead discussion at I-CSI dinners, and give 1-2 public lectures (or deliver lectures in inequality courses).
In addition, I-CSI plans to invite a critical mass of contributors from within and beyond Yale to produce research papers, reports, trend analysis, policy briefs, thought pieces, and other media throughout the year.
