During his remarks, he talked about the work he does on behalf of the university, both at home and abroad, and thanked everyone in the audience for all their work in support of Yale’s mission. Salovey also announced the launch of the President’s Award for Staff Excellence (, which will recognize the outstanding contributions and accomplishments of Yale employees. The event culminated in a celebration in Commons Dining Hall, where refreshments were served and entertainment was provided by Mikata — a local salsa band.
