On 27 August 2021, the National University of Singapore announced the plan to ‘merge’ Yale-NUS College with the University Scholars Programme by 2025. In short: The Yale-NUS we knew would be gone in four years.
The announcement and its finality were a complete shock to some 2,500 Yale-NUS staff, faculty, students and alumni. We had neither been made aware nor consulted in making this decision that affected our lives and futures.
In the days since this announcement, the community has been seeking explanations, recourse, and alternatives. It has also been grieving. This website was created as an archive to remember this grief, and as a reminder that no matter what the future may hold for Yale-NUS, we are not alone. #WeAreYaleNUS
