Illustrious Yale faculty members who have held the Crosby Professorship include Michael Smith, Harold Conklin, and Alison Richard, who also served as Provost of the University from 1994 to 2002. Leonard G. Carpenter Fund (1989) With gifts from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and Leonard G. Carpenter ( b.a. 1924), the Leonard G. Carpenter Fund was established to provide competi- tively awarded support for scholarly proj- ects initiated by students. The fund aims to support graduate and undergraduate stu- dent research activities in various fields relating to environmental and natural- resource topics. The Bass Family Gifts Dedicated alumnus Edward P. Bass (1967, b.s. 1968), who serves as co-Chair of the Yale Tomorrow campaign, is from a family that has been among the most generous in Yale’s history. University e orts supported by the family include the construction of the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass ( b.s. 1937) Center for Molecular and Structural Biology, initiatives such as the Bass Writing Program, and renovations of Linsly-Chittenden Hall, William L. Harkness Hall, Rudolph Hall, Berkeley College, and the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Library (formerly known as Cross Campus Library). Edward Bass made a landmark commit- ment in 1990 to create the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies ( yibs ), a multidiscipli- nary center that promotes and integrates work among science departments such as Geology and Geophysics and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, as well as the Peabody Museum and the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. Mr. Bass’s wide-ranging support for yibs includes endowed funds for two full professorships in biospheric studies, the permanent directorship of the Peabody Museum, and a program of visiting envi- ronmental scholars. His initiatives have spurred funding for environmental studies at Yale by many other donors. He con- tributed, in addition, toward the Environ- mental Science Center, Kroon Hall, and other buildings on Science Hill. In continuing support for Yale’s e orts to address climate change, Edward Bass made a gift of start-up funding in 2009 to create the Yale Climate and Energy Institute ( ycei ). The Institute will serve as the University’s focal point for developing and evaluating solutions to climate change by providing support for interdisciplinary research, postgraduate education, and out- reach through conferences and workshops. The Benjamin Zucker Family Environmental Fund (1990) To spark student interest in sustainability topics, Benjamin Zucker and Richard L. Zorn (both b.a. 1962) created the Benjamin Zucker Family Environmental Fund to support the Zucker Environmental Fellows program, which brings distin- guished environmental studies scholars and leaders to Yale. The fund also supports exhibits at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History’s Hall of Minerals, Earth, and Space.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
