Yale Athletics Kiphuth Leadership Academy

The Kiphuth Leadership Academy, named in honor of legendary Yale swimming coach, Robert J. Kiphuth, develops Yale student-athletes and coaches to be world-class leaders in athletics, academics, and life.

The cutting edge academy uses a two-tiered format targeting both emerging leaders and veteran leaders on Yale's varsity athletic teams. Partnered with Yale's coaching staff, student leaders work closely with peer groups and small focus groups to learn, develop and practice skills associated with successful leadership qualities.

Yale is first among Ivy League institutions to provide comprehensive leadership development programs for their student-athletes and coaches.
