Apply for Short-Term Membership

January 1, 2015

Dear Applicant,

Welcome to Dwight Hall at Yale!

The linked document constitutes the application form for short-term membership of Dwight Hall at Yale. You should use this document to articulate your group’s activities from its goals for the project to the day-to-day details of structure and logistics. This reflection and expression will help ensure your group’s successful completion of a short-term project.

Please e-mail the application to me as an attachment when it is complete. There is no due date, but if you submit later than late November, your group may not be approved until the next school year.  In any case, your group will remain in the new membership process for a maximum of one year from when you submit the application, but we reserve the right to admit or deny your group to Dwight Hall at any time in that year.

After your application has been received, I will meet with you to discuss your group’s application to Dwight Hall in more detail and to explain our membership process to you. Shortly afterwards, your application and my report of it will be presented to the Dwight Hall Student Executive Committee, who will then decide whether to grant short-term member status to your group.  If approved, you will meet with the Membership Committee (composed of the Program Director, your network liaison, and myself) to help ensure a seamless transition into Dwight Hall. If appropriate, there will also be a meeting between the Program Director and your group’s community contact person.

If your group is granted short-term member status, it will have access to certain Dwight Hall resources (such as copying, use of Dwight Hall cars, and access to funding opportunities).

Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or problems. Thank you for your application, and I look forward to working with you toward Dwight Hall’s mission in the future!
