At 4:46 p.m. today, an email from Dean Mary Miller informed students of Yale College that Leslie Woodard, dean of Calhoun College, died earlier today of what is now said to be natural causes. There are no words for the tragedy that occurred today, and both the Calhoun Community, and the Yale community at large are in complete shock. Tonight at 8 p.m. there will be a gathering in the Calhoun courtyard to remember Dean Woodard. Yale Health counselors will be available to talk to at any time, and can be reached at (203) 432.0123.
Leslie was an excellent dean and an amazing friend, and she will be remembered in our hearts.
