Yeh College

Yeh College, located south of Poe Field, will open its doors to undergraduate students in fall 2022. This new college will integrate into a vibrant community-building residential college environment that will provide students with a home to support their educational needs. Asif Ghazanfar, professor of psychology and neuroscience, has been named head of NCE. Alexis Andres, currently the dean of Whitman College, has been named NCE’s inaugural dean. As the next generation of residential colleges, Yeh will accommodate and support an increasingly diverse undergraduate population.

Yeh will provide opportunities and resources similar to those provided at the other six colleges, such as resident graduate students, a faculty-in-residence, dining halls with private dining rooms, communal kitchens, and college office suites to maximize formal and informal interactions with students.
