Dwight Hall

Dwight Hall’s mission is to nurture and inspire students as leaders of social change and to advance justice and service in New Haven and around the world.

Dwight Hall at Yale is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that was founded by undergraduates in 1886 and has operated continuously since then as a student-led entity. As the Center for Public Service and Social Justice, Dwight Hall reflects a diverse Yale student body and a strong history of social justice work in New Haven and beyond. Dwight Hall at Yale is an independent, nonsectarian umbrella organization and the country’s largest campus-based student-run service organization.

Dwight Hall recognizes that long-term solutions to the world’s problems come from focusing on developing passionate, innovative leaders. Dwight Hall exists as a place to cultivate student leaders invested in ethical productivity, creativity, communication, and collaboration. Dwight Hall promotes a culture of action and reflection that encourages student leaders to share best practices, learn from successful leaders, and collaborate on solving societal challenges.
