Caryl Yzenbaard

Professor Caryl Yzenbaard Legacy Fund

Chase has always prided itself on its stellar teaching-focused faculty. The faculty’s classroom excellence is sustained by an impressive body of scholarship. Scholarship always serves the teaching function, deepening the faculty’s historical insights, improving its subject-matter expertise, and maintaining its awareness of the latest developments in the law. Engaged scholarship and outstanding teaching go hand-in-hand. Together, they produce the stimulating class hour; over time, those class hours add up to the lasting and satisfying legacy that provides a satisfying capstone to a career as a professor of law. 

Through the dedication of her life’s work to the students of Chase, Professor Caryl Yzenbaard has amassed innumerable class hours, teaching thousands of students over a stellar forty-year career. She has left a legacy. Her legacy is you.

The aim of this year’s alumni campaign is to sustain a special legacy. Proceeds from this year’s campaign will form the Professor Caryl Yzenbaard Legacy Fund. Consistent with the dedication that Caryl showed her students, the fund will be used to support our students. It will be used for scholarships, emergency loans, and enhanced student programs. Caryl lived her legacy. Your gift will fund its continuation. I invite you to consider your legacy at Chase, and to join with your colleagues and friends in sustaining it. Give to the Professor Caryl Yzenbaard Legacy Fund today.
