In its 135 years, Dwight Hall at Yale has risen to many challenges, including the 1918 influenza pandemic, world wars, the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, and apartheid. The world has shifted for each of us in the past several weeks, and Dwight Hall’s students, staff, and Board will keep you apprised of our response to the rapidly evolving coronavirus pandemic.
While Yale students will not return to campus this semester, Dwight Hall is guaranteeing employment for more than 100 student workers by shifting assignments and moving some program delivery online. The Muslim Leadership Lab cohort will adapt with online trainings in community organizing. The Hall is also exploring new opportunities to engage students in reflection and independent study.
