Becoming a Community Partner

Dwight Hall at Yale values the unique, vibrant communities in New Haven and abroad, and works to maintain strong relationships with residents, non-profit organizations, for-profit partners, and government institutions.  Thanks to the vast network DH has been able to cultivate since its founding, our students continue to have the opportunity to engage with the city outside of Yale’s barriers and grow as civic-minded individuals.

Knowing that we are only one organization, DH strives to be of service to both community organizations and residents, building bridges and relationships wherever possible.
