The Yale Club of D.C. Mentoring Program provides alumni the opportunity to both serve as  mentors to Yale alums as well as seek out mentors through our vast alumni network in the Washington, D.C. area .  The program, which is free to join, simply asks that mentors and mentees touch base and make time for at least one in-person meeting in the three months following the mentor/mentee connection.  Depending upon specified interests, mentors may be assigned as many as four mentees; mentees may be assigned more than one mentor.

Davis A. Buckley, B.Arch ’71

Davis A. Buckley, B.Arch ’71, possesses expert knowledge of the design of commemorative architecture, particularly in urban and historical contexts. His sensitive designs have been recognized with over 35 design awards.


Davis came to Washington after receiving an appointment from the U.S. House of Representatives where he completed a much lauded study, allowing Congress to optimize their existing work space and, where possible, obtain additional work space through historically sensitive intervention.


In 1979, Davis established the firm that bears his name and has worked on a wide range of projects including: educational facilities, national museums and memorials, historic preservation, master planning, hotels, corporate offices, mixed-use projects and medical facilities.  He designed the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, a 3 acre memorial in Judiciary Square to honor the local, state and federal law officers killed in the line of duty and the National Japanese American Memorial, a 33,000 SF memorial adjacent to the US Capitol to commemorate the patriotism of Japanese Americans during World War II.  He also designed the restoration of the entrance and stair hall, kitchen and exterior of the Stephen Decatur House Museum, an 1818 structure on Lafayette Square.


Davis was elevated to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects in 2005.  Davis explains that the Yale School of Architecture encouraged collaboration between faculty and students.  “Faculty at the time included Dean Charles W Moore, Denise Scott-Brown, Robert Venturi, Bucky Fuller, urban theorist Serge Chermayeff and James Sterling - all iconic architects who made significant contributions to architecture.


Indeed, those years at Yale formed my character and my passion for Civic Architecture. Since then, I have followed this passion and have had the honor to design two National Memorials.  It is my hope that these memorials touch the very soul of an individual, a community, and the country. I am thankful and honored to have studied at Yale.”
