Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale

The Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale (Tsai CITY) aims to inspire and support students from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to seek innovative ways to address real-world problems.

Launched in 2017, CITY serves students from across Yale’s campus through programs, funding, and mentorship. We’re building a new kind of innovation center, one rooted in radical inclusivity: here, students from all backgrounds tackle issues like climate change and civic engagement, develop creative projects from documentary films to digital platforms, and launch high-growth ventures and movements. Whether you have a big idea you’re ready to build on or just want to explore the mindsets and tools of innovation, we can help you get there.
