The Afro-American Cultural Center (affectionately known as “The House”) has weekly, monthly, and quarterly newsletters for our undergraduate, graduate/professional student, organization, alumni, and local community constituents to keep these key stakeholders abreast of events, opportunities, and updates. To sign up for any (or all!) of these newsletters, please contact afamhouse@yale.edu or see below.

  • Weekly Newsblast: The House sends out a weekly newsblast to students (primarily) and others who have signed up to share House updates on center, resident group, and campus events; deadlines for jobs, internships, and scholarships; and other important news. Sign up for our newsletter!
     
  • Student Organizations Newsletter: The House’s Student Leadership Development team sends out monthly newsletters to leaders of our resident student groups to keep them posted on meeting/event updates, funding opportunities, upcoming deadlines, and more.

  • Community Partners Newsletter: Sign up for this monthly newsletter to learn about community engagement at the House as well events and opportunities that are open to the general public.

  • Alumni Newsletters: The House sends a quarterly newsletter to its beloved alumni community and other Friends of the House to keep them up to date on House happenings, particularly events that are open to them and opportunities to engage with and support our students. When nearing the House’s anniversary, these newsletters are generally sent on a monthly basis. Click on the Alumni Newsletter link to sign up!
     
  •  Semesterly newsletters: From 2015 to 2018, the House offered weekly newsblasts for students and semesterly newsletters for our broader community. We moved to shorter, constituent-based newsletters in 2018 to provide the most resonant info to each population. Take a trip down memory lane and check out some of the House’s semesterly newsletters from our earlier days!
