Dwight Hall Mission
The mission of Dwight Hall at Yale is “to foster civic-minded student leaders and to promote service and activism in New Haven and around the world.”
The fundamental community concerns that brought the Hall into existence over 120 years ago persist today, though the form of their expression changes with each student generation. As Yale strives to develop engaged global citizens, Dwight Hall complements the University’s initiatives with creative and responsible learning opportunities that extend beyond the classroom. In a paraphrase of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German theologian, Dwight Hall is “an institution for others” – an institution with a long history of “helping the helpers” to enable each generation to respond to unmet human needs.
