Yale University is located in New Haven, Connecticut. The university comprises three major academic components: Yale College (the undergraduate program), the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the professional schools. In addition, Yale encompasses a wide array of centers and programs. Approximately 11,250 students attend Yale. Its roots can be traced back to the 1640s.

Carbon capture and storage
In August 2010, the U.S. Department of Energy announced that it had picked Yale University for a $1.5 million project to develop carbon capture technologies to store carbon dioxide. The project is among 15 at a cost of $21.3 million over three years nationally to try and develop technology to store carbon dioxide in geologic formations. Yale will study questions about the chemical and mechanical processes for carbonation to be practical on a large scale. Geologic storage is focused on depleted oil and gas reservoirs, saline formations, unmineable coal seams, and other areas. 
Yale University does animal testing.
Facility information, progress reports & USDA-APHIS reports
This facility performed animal experiments involving pain or distress but no analgesics, anesthetics or pain relievers were administered. For links to copies of this facility's U.S. Department of Agriculture-Animal Plant Health Inspection (APHIS) reports, other information and links, see also Facility Reports and Information: Yale University, New Haven, CT.
USDA AWA reports
As of May 26, 2009, the USDA began posting all inspection reports for animal breeders, dealers, exhibitors, handlers, research facilities and animal carriers by state. See also USDA Animal Welfare Inspection Reports.
Animal cruelty & welfare violations
In May of 2010, Yale received 11 citations from the USDA for violations of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). The violations involved inadequate supervision, Veterinary Care, Exercise, Facilities, Environmental Enhancement and inadequate housing. A May 3, 2010 inspection report cites Yale for two incidents where baboons were burned and 5 separate incidents of primate escapes. There were repeated incidents of other animals failing to receive adequate veterinary care. Yale was also cited seven times by the USDA for AWA violations in 2009.
