Although the activities of the program focus on the students of Timothy Dwight College, its principal beneficiary, the impact is felt throughout the student body of Yale University and in the community at large. The response of Yale students to the program continues to be enthusiastic, as it provides a unique opportunity to interact in a relaxed setting, to discuss both national and international issues and the challenges and pleasures of public life. This personal contact is what differentiates the Chubb Fellowship visit from other university lectureship invitations. It makes for a rewarding experience for all those in the Yale community who have contact with the Chubb Fellow.
