Dwight Hall believes that service and community engagement should be a part of every college student’s experience.  To that end, we aim to recruit a Fellow in each residential college, sports team, and Greek organization who will encourage their existing social communities to become active in service.

Each outreach fellow will build partnerships, create projects, and recruit others to complete a service that builds on the unique strength of their social community.
