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, Tsai 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.
